|About||The gallery was founded in 2009 to bring great art to the people of Lebanon and the region, to promote the works of artists with different backgrounds and styles, and to be an engaging meeting place for all art lovers.|
The Hamazkayin Lucy Tutunjian Art Gallery built with the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Garbis and Lucy Tutunjian, the gallery aims to play a unique role in the Lebanese-Armenian community and Lebanon's cultural landscape.
As a new but continuously growing cultural center, the gallery also intends to build on the multifold and multifarious activities of the Hamazkayin Armenian Educational and Cultural Society, a non-profit organization founded in Egypt in 1928, which now has chapters in the Republic of Armenia and in various Armenian communities in the Middle East, Europe, the United States, Canada, South America, and Australia.
Located on the ground floor of Shaghzoyan Center in Bourj Hammoud, the gallery is just 10 minutes drive from downtown Beirut. It is adjacent to the Hamazkayin "Vahe Setian" Printing & Publishing House and Bookstore.
The permanent collection of the gallery contains works of well-known artists. The gallery has provided a showcase for celebrated Lebanese and international artists.
The official launching ceremony was held on November 12, 2009, with the exhibition of works by renowned Lebanese-Armenian artist Guvder.
