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.




Gallery Al-Quds invites you to the exhibition

Yasmine Dabbous explores how fabric becomes a psychological, political and economic force  for Syrian refugees,  the women whose embroidery gave them solace and income. Embroidered patterns from Damascus tiles represent the anchor trauma-inflicted refugees yearn for.                                  

Molly Sinclair McCartney’s  photos  of her visit to Syria before the war remind us of the life that once was.
