The F.A.N. Gallery is located in the heart of historic Old City Philadelphia, in a Colonial building that dates back to the 1740s. Since it was founded by Fraidoon Al-Nakib in February of 1991, the F.A.N. Gallery has exhibited the works of emerging and established artists alike. The gallery primarily shows realist painters from the region, though it has been host to some national artists also. The paintings, sculptures, and works on paper range from figurative to landscape and still-life pieces.
