Since 2000, the Gallery Al-Quds has been the sole, full-time area showcase for the exhibition of contemporary art by Arab-American and Arab artists. The Gallery specializes in the work of Palestinian artists, with an additional emphasis on the work of contemporary artists whose art centers on issues of the Arab and Islamic world. The gallery exhibits work in a full range of media including painting, sculpture, photography, film and mixed media.
Here is a chance for the general public to view 7 paintings by
Qais Al-Sindy, with accompanying poems at the World Bank Visitor Center M-F until Dec 3. Local poets Zeina Azzam and Rana Jaafar Yasseen are among those included. The paintings, part of his 16x20x20 exhibit (reviewed in The Washington Post) hauntingly tell the story of immigrants and refugees, what they bring, what they lost, what they hope for.
Exhibition Dates: October 26— November 16, 2018
