The Jerusalem Fund Gallery / Breaching the Wall

Mona El-Bayoumi

The Jerusalem Fund Gallery
Contemporary Middle East and Arab American Artists
Breaching the Wall
May 20 -- June 24, 2011    
Opening reception Friday May 20, 6 – 8 p.m.

For millennia, artists have used their talents to express thoughts and emotions deeply personal, as well as reflecting their reactions to the world around them.  In light of this, The Jerusalem Fund Gallery invited 11 artists from around the U.S. including Rajie Cook, Mona El-Bayoumi, Najat El-Khairy, Elena Farsakh, Adib Fattal, John Halaka, Michael Keating, Ellen O’Grady, Ammar Qusaibaty, Mary Tuma and Helen Zughaib to create a work of art reflecting their perceptions of the separation wall in Palestine.  Interpreted in painting, sculpture, video, photography, porcelain and other media, each artist’s work speaks in a unique voice to this issue.
