Five women artists of Palestinian heritage from Gaza, Jordan, Australia, and the U.S. exhibit their performance, video, paintings, photography and sculpture. Art of Palestinian Women looks at the past and present to illustrate layers of Palestinian history. Portraits of Palestinians and those of other indigenous cultures, and vistas of ancestral lands show how art preserves and bears testimony to strife and joy in Palestinian lives. Using Tatreez patterns, Arabic calligraphy, Palestinian iconography and gold leaf, the colors and materials of Palestinian  culture are contemporized.
