the Curator of Arte Arta Gallery: Nour Chamoun
Nour Chamoun the curator of Arte Arta Gallery hails from Aleppo, Syria, a city torn apart by war and conflict. Through this tragedy, Nour settled in Montreal, Canada, and founded Arte Arta Gallery to help artists to promote and sell their works to a global audience. She wanted to be part of expressing something beautiful, something that talks to the heart—ART.
Nour first became fascinated by the power of art while studying the history of civilizations in tourism school and how much beauty, emotion, and information could be transmitted to us by art made over thousands of years ago. She visited the many important archeological and historic sites of Syria. This opened her eyes to the importance of beauty in the world, and the meaning and history communicated over millennia by the works of ancient art (architecture, mosaics, sculptures, etc.).
Throughout history, even during times of war and conflict, Art has been a way of documenting the times and capturing the emotions of the day. Art has always helped to raise awareness of events and suffering. Art is a universal language; it connects to the heart and helps us feel better.
When you read the stories behind the artists she features, you will understand the power and passion that is embedded in their Art making those works inherently more valuable. She is dedicated to working with artists representing a broad cross-section of themes and styles expressed by people from all walks of life and from all over the world.
Nour noted, “Art plays a very important role in our lives, we need beauty more than any time before and art helps us to experience beauty.”
