Private homes in Umm el-Fahem hosting art exhibitions


The Umm el-Fahem Art Gallery and the Green Tapestry Wadi ‘Ara Association invite you to partake of a unique and fascinating artistic and cultural journey. Some thirty artists, Jewish and Arab, from the Wadi ‘Ara area and elsewhere, came together for a joint process of discovery and artistic creation. The fruits of what they’ve done will be presented in a series of exhibtions in private homes of residents of Umm el-Fahem.

You are invited to visit the residents’ homes and enjoy the exhibitions along with an intimate, unmediated encounter with the hosts and the local customs, language, and culture, every Saturday 18 July - 29 August (excluding August 1st, Eid al-Adha).
