Its physical facilities are located on a 185 meter square premises, and comprise three distinctly separate sections, a) the main exhibition area, b) an artifact gift shop; and c) office facility incorporating selections from the Gallery’s private collection. The main objectives of the gallery include:

creating a suitable environment for promoting young and potential artists; and establishing linkage with art galleries outside Iran and exchanging art works.

Since its establishment, in addition to regular (2-3 weekly) exhibitions, the Gallery has initiated a number of special programmes which have been widely acclaimed; these were:
“celebrating 60 years of painting by Hanibal Alkhas” – one of the recognized pioneers of modern painting in Iran;
an exhibition of the works of the late Mohamad Shivaie (“Kakou”) – 5 years since his last exhibition in Iran. Kakou is
best known as the pioneer in cubic painting in Iran; and an exhibition of paintings by 15 of the most well-known painters in two generations, dating back to the onset of contemporary painting in Iran, including works by Sepehri, Pilaram, Mohasses, Oveisi and others. During the summer of 2005, the Gallery introduced 3 new and young artists through organizing first exhibition of their works; this event was well received by a wide range of people and art critics. Likewise, efforts have been made, and being continued, in promoting contemporary painters in cities outside Tehran. So far, two exhibitions have been organized for two artists from Yazd and Isfahan.
