On December 16, 2021, an art exhibit entitled New Year, New Hope opened online, organized and hosted by Hamazkayin’s Lucy Tutunjian Gallery. The exhibit features over 120 artists from Lebanon, Armenia, and elsewhere, all of whom are well-deserving of recognition, and many of them young.
This exhibit is being hosted as a celebration of the tenth anniversary of the Lucy Tutunjian Gallery’s opening. The exhibition was delayed due to the economic and health crises occurring in Lebanon, which have been exacerbated by the pandemic. Each artist who had worked with the gallery showed their gratitude by donating a work of art to the exhibit. An additional complicating factor was the tragic explosions at the port of Beirut, and artists showed support by providing works to the gallery. This exhibition, which brings together so many talented artists, is a beacon of hope.
