Alhamra is derived from Alhamra of Granada, Spain, which has been a center of culture, arts and religious inclusiveness over the centuries. Having been identified as a sacred place in the pagan era, the Alhamra of Spain has been under the rule of different regimes and religions and has lived its life as a mosque and a church among other things. This rich heritage has resulted in it becoming a landmark of unity, inclusiveness, defiance, grace, and grandeur in times of siege.
Alhamra Art Center, NJ, comprises an art gallery & education center. The art gallery features artwork from local and international artists. The education center holds various activities including art classes, calligraphy classes, workshops, Coffee and Canvas events, open mic poetry and prose recitals and talks.
We created Alhamra Art Center, in Bernardsville New Jersey along the same principles. For this to become a place where the universal language of the arts is used to encourage dialogue, dispel differences and enhance creativity and compassion. Supporting art education, showcasing local artists, charity events, equality initiatives.
