BRITISH MUSLIM AND JEWISH ART EXHIBITION
'Al Noor' by Maryam Golubeva
On the anniversary of Salaam Shalom's tenth year, we present an art exhibition of local and national significance, including work by twelve talented Muslim and Jewish Artists from across the UK and Bristol.
Some Artists explore religious and cultural tradition, others touch on stories of lives and cultures left behind, as well as artists who express contemporary identities, our connectedness with ourselves, our communities and our wider world.
You will discover a rich heritage of geometric design and calligraphy, common to both Islamic and Judaic art, delicately interwoven with personal expression. We are particularly excited to display a remarkable collaboration between the Artist Tom Berry and Poet Shagufta Iqbal, both who have Bristol roots.
Including: Nasreen Sheikh Jamal Al Lail, Lateefa Spiker, Josh Baum, Tom Berry, Maryam Golubeva, Lorna Brunstein, Vaseem Mohamed, Peter Brill, Amber Khokhar, Verdi Yahooda, Louise Block, Shagufta Iqbal.
Produced by Salaam Shalom and curated by Rebecca Bellamy and Wendy Rayment
