Woven with Her Brush
Paintings by Zohra Ben Hamida
At the Jerusalem Fund Gallery
January 21—March 4, 2011
Reception to meet the artist Friday, January 21, 6-8 p.m.
Artist Zohra Ben Hamida says of herself “I am an Arab and Berber by ancestry, Tunisian by birth, Mediterranean and African by a lucky chance, American by destiny, and who I am today by choice.”  

In her paintings at The Jerusalem Fund Gallery, color is the theme.The blazing sun straddling the cool shades over the desert in Saudi Arabia, memories of the bright garments adorned with gold and silver fibulae my Berber grandmother always wore with such pride; colors encountered every day, the colors of the bougainvillea and jasmine, indiscriminately lending their beauty and fragrance to modest and luxurious houses alike; a bigger than life icon inhabiting a Roman church for hundreds of years, still calling attention to itself with its dazzling gold-leaf garment, ,bright colors, sprinkled everywhere you look, reminding us that beauty exists around and within us, reminding us that beauty will always prevail.”
