Gallery One is a Ramallah based contemporary art gallery founded in 2014 by Samar Martha, an independent curator. The gallery presents a multidisciplinary array of solo and occasionally curated group exhibitions. Gallery One represents and promotes established and emerging Palestinian artists living in Palestine and abroad. The gallery breaks free from the local non-profit art sector of Palestine and the Middle East to an independent, commercial gallery context, as well as an exhibition space that bridges the gap between the artist and the public. Gallery One creates a market venue for Palestinian art, establishing a customer base for artists and their work.
