Online PR News – 15-October-2017 – Houston, TX – A group of Houstonians have come together to put up an Art show like no other! They are arranging an Islamic Arts Festival on the 11th & 12th of November. They come from varied backgrounds, an architect, a physician, an engineer, a house wife, a store owner, a student; but they have one thing in common. Their passion to create Islamic Arts! Together they create beauty on canvas, paper, wood, glass and ceramic tiles. They are showcasing their art at Masjid AlSalam, 16700 Old Louetta Road, Spring, TX 77379.
In the age of negative stereotyping of Islam there is an urgent need to present what is good about it. That was impetus for the artists to arrange this unique, one of a kind, event. The artists believe that they are taking this small step to promote the rich heritage of arts in Islam. This will be an occasion to celebrate the beauty of Islam.

The Islamic civilization gave the world some of its richest endowments in arts. Today, Muslims have lost their lead in arts and there is need to revive our heritage in art forms. The “Islamic Arts Society” aim is to revive the rich traditions of arts in Islam by organizing Islamic Arts Festivals throughout Houston.

The art show will enlighten our children, friends and neighbors about the unique place of arts in Islam and also inspire and acknowledge budding local artists.
