Umm al-Fahm Art Gallery

The Umm al-Fahm Art Gallery was established on April 10,1996 on the initiative of local residents and artists who wanted to bring quality contemporary art to the city and its population,and to exhibit original Arab and Palestinian art.

The gallery operates under the auspices of the El-Sabar Association, founded four years ago, with a membership that includes intellectual and cultural figures from the entire area of Wadi Ara.

The gallery's major aim has been to enable Arab and Jewish artists to express their cultures. This is a complex process, given the divided reality of the times.The gallery operates in a region whose identity is Arabic, and whose residents are citizens of the State of Israel. It struggles constantly with the need to maintain its secularism within religious surroundings, as well as for the attention of a Jewish audience that has not yet faced up to the divided reality.

With the lack of any other art galleries in the Arab sector in Israel, Umm al-Fahm has become a focal point for encounters between artists from different sectors and fields of creative activity and the general public, as well as between local and international artists.
