People of the Middle East have endured much

suffering in modern times from wars,

famine, terrorism, invasion, and occupation,

but there is much more to life in the region

and we have broadened the scope of the

exhibition to include the full spectrum of life.

There is beauty, art, love, friendship, families,

science, and hope for a better future.

Illume Gallery will present the works of

artists of the Middle East on this webpage

in an online exhibition premiering

December 1, 2021. Through their art, they

will express their thoughts, hopes, and dreams

concerning their lives in the Middle East.

This is a juried invitational featuring artists

of the Middle East. This is not an open

call. Invitations with submission instructions

were sent out to artists on April 3, 2021.

There will also be a photo book published

to document the exhibition.
