Cradle presents the work of three artists, currently residing in Edmonton, who originally come from regions associated with some of the cradles of civilization mentioned above. Arriving in Canada as economic immigrants or refugees from war and conflict, each of these artists is a story teller, sharing in their artworks ancient and rich cultural histories and legacies.

While concerned with specific places and people in their works, however, these artists also strive to address more universal concerns to demonstrate that, regardless of where people come from, we are all one people with similar dreams and desires.

This exhibition features works by Hanny Al Khoury, originally from Palestine; Riaz Mehmood, originally from Pakistan; and Aboud Salman, originally from Syria and was organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition program.
