From the Shulamit Gallery:
Shulamit Gallery seeks to engage Angelenos through cross-cultural exhibitions and programming, featuring artwork by emerging and established artists. The Gallery supports work that is aesthetically innovative, socially engaged, and that fosters dialogue and views the artist as a cultural ambassador. Devoted to building bridges between our regional and global community, Shulamit Gallery focuses on the Middle East with a special interest in Israeli, Iranian and Jewish artists.
Shulamit Gallery is deeply rooted in the Persian value of mehman navaz, meaning hospitality. In Hebrew this is expressed as hakhnasat orchim. The Gallery is a place where people from diverse communities are welcomed. Here you can meet and converse. Art is meant to inspire curiosity, celebrate similarities and share differences. Our programming explores the role of art and culture in assimilation, acculturation, shifting geographical boundaries, personal identity and how racism and religious persecution negatively impact our society. Shulamit Gallery strives to use art as a platform to create a more inclusive and hospitable future. Khosh amadid ⎯ We look forward to welcoming you to Shulamit Gallery.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday–Saturday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and by appointment
