  • A privately owned art gallery, studio and library by the Saudi artist Safeya Binzagr. Drawing and painting lessons for girls up to age 16 are given by well qualified artists. They also organize an open art competition every year for school children and display them publicly. The museum is open for visitors but you need to contact them first for that.
  • Really disappointed that this place is not open during the week. Came highly recommended, loved the website. But got no response

  • Who can rival such talent, effort and amazing work? Her studies of all mediums i.e. pencil, coloured chalk, water colour & oil are superb. Her perspective and capturing of scenes are unique. The arrest is gifted and she has captured Jeddah"s past in oil and shared it in her gallery for all to view. Each room in the artist gallery is dedicated to a study of pencil drawings, marriage scenes, boats at sea, or children at play. The gallery itself is beautiful and the displays are original. Everything meticulously thought out including the items on display of Hijazi combs, chole ( مكحله) eye make up etc. Her gallery is a must visit in Jeddah to understand how our ancestors or grandparents lived in old Jeddah. It is a landmark of significant importance particularly to artists. Her prints and graphics particularly on the costumes of Saudi Arabia is most remarkable. I would love the complete work in a book as it's a study..... The display in the sewing machines are remarkable. It just goes on, surprises and delights. The artist is to be congratulated on her imagination and hard work. The grand finally is the study on costume and the mannequins in beautiful wear of the Saudi region's. Well done indeed a most talented artist Who chose to share her talent and placed Jeddah and it's culture on the map. I am so proud of you particularly the artist is my aunt. Now I wish to leave you to judge for yourself and relish in the magnificent display of Saudi costumes of the many regions of our beautiful land.
