Having artworks in the collections of both the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, Modernist sculptor Oded Halahmy is well recognized by the world's art establishment.

His sculptures relate to his many and varied homelands from his birthplace in 1938 in Baghdad, to his current 5th floor loft studio in trendy SoHo. Along the way he has also lived in Israel, London, and Toronto before settling in New York.

Halahmy has consciously sought to maintain within his sculptures an iconography reflective of his roots, especially in the form of the pomegranate - an ancient of symbol of the stubborn tenacity of beauty, fertility, and rebirth - an icon consistently alluded to in all the ancient middle eastern cultures and religions.

Halahmy has established the beautifully appointed Pomegranate Gallery on prestigious Greene Street just around the corner from his SoHo studio. Halahmy explains "As an artist born in Baghdad, it is very exciting for me to bring works by Middle Eastern artists, as well as leading contemporary Iraqi artists to New York City." He felt compelled to open a gallery that would introduce Americans to the serious artistic initiatives from the Middle East. He observes that Americans are not only becoming increasingly international in their art collecting, but hopes that his gallery will serve as a cultural ambassador to awaken American consciousness of Middle Eastern Art.

The gallery is supported in part by the Oded Halahmy Foundation for the Arts, non-profit cultural organization created to fund original Middle East arts, thereby fostering peace and hope around the world. The Foundation has already supported a number of Middle Eastern writers and poets by bringing their translated works to an American audience.
