Agial Art Gallery invites you to the opening of Bernard Ghanem's exhibition "Shortcut to Freedom" on Tuesday, September 6 at 5:00-8:00pm.

The Passion of saving the “moment before” beauty remains free of defect, an echo of what is left, a shortcut to Freedom. -Bernard Ghanem

Since childhood, Bernard Ghanem (Lebanon, b.1963) had a talent in transforming any raw material and scraps into objects of play which captured and engaged people around him. A student of life, he developed a talent nourished by his sensibility and natural ability to create art out of ordinary material.


He moved from designing day to day lighting, to his first creative work of light, his sculpture ”The Dancer” in 1992, followed by another work of art,” The Escape”, etc. He is also an associate artist of the Sursock Museum’s Salon d’Automne. He had three solo exhibitions, in 1996, 2001 and 2012 at ”Agial Art Gallery”, Beirut. In 2002 Bernard traveled to the United Kingdom where he held numerous exhibitions in Hutton in the Forest Historic House,Cumbria followed at Kingston Lacy House, Dorset. His sculpture ”Progress” became part of the permanent collection of Lady and Lord Hutton’s permanent art collection. He is also a member of the Cumbria Sculptors Association. He held his solo exhibition “Balance” at Fire & Iron Gallery in 2003 UK. In May 2008, three of his sculptures were chosen to be part of the gallery’s permanent collection and to be part of Surrey Sculptural Trail held every year at the Royal Horticultural Society’s garden at Wisely, Surrey, UK. In 2013 he held with 60 Artists the largest ever Exhibition of sculptures in Lebanon at MACAM « Modern And Contemporary Art Museum » six of his sculptures, one metre high, was dedicated to “MACAM” followed by a second donation “Prisoners”, six metres high, in 2014, and a third donation “Society”, six metres high, in 2018, to be preserved for future generations.
