Another piece held in a private family collection

Khoury would occasionally do impressionistic pieces conjuring memories of country life in Palestine for family members and others. Not representative of his style but fascinating and beautiful. This one belongs to his sister, Hilda.

Sari Khoury Gallery Show in June at Art Reach of Mid Michigan

The artwork of Sari Khoury will be on display in a Gallery Show throughout the month of June at Art Reach of Mid Michigan, located in downtown Mt. Pleasant. The showcase will take place June 1- 30 during gallery hours which are Monday ­– Friday; 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. and Saturday: 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Sari I Khoury, Professor, artist and Jerusalemite passed away in 1997. His work has been exhibited throughout the world.

Born in Jerusalem, Palestine in 1941, Sari Khoury moved with his family to the United States as a young man. He received his M.F.A. from Cranbook Academy of Arts and subsequently taught at Berea College in Berea, Kentucky before coming to Central Michigan University in 1967.

Sari spent over 29 years as faculty and for a period, Chairman of the Art Department. He focused on his teaching and studio work. Yet, he always kept connections with his place of birth in Jerusalem.  It was in this ancient city that he first developed his artistic talent, influenced by the colors, people and deep spiritual and cultural atmosphere that permeated his childhood.

It is a familiar refrain that an artist’s life is too short. Fortunately, Sari Khoury’s art continues to be exhibited and shared with the public.

Join Art Reach for the month of June as we celebrate the work of Sari Khoury. To learn more about Khoury’s life, his artwork, and previous exhibitions, visit

Sari Khoury: Artist of the Month at Bir Zeit University Paltel virtual gallery

More exciting developments. A few months back, Prof. Vera Tamari, herself an an accomplished and wonderful artist, contacted us about creating a virtual equivalent of the Arab American National Museum exhibit. With the museum's blessing and support, and the amazing staff at Bir Zeit University, the virtual exhibit is up and running. 

See it here. 

The exhibit has the added advantage that Prof Tamari has provided her illuminating commentary and analysis to each of the paintings and drawings. Please visit the exhibit and pay attention to the great work done at Palestine's finest educational institution, Bir Zeit University.
