Closing Reception & Special Discussion – October 30th

Shirin Gallery
Conversation with the Artist and Reception
Thursday, October 30, 6 – 9 pm

Shirin Gallery NY will host an evening reception and conversation with their exhibiting artist, Farah Ossouli, who will be available for an informal question and answer session about her current exhibit, Wounded Virtue.

Farah Ossouli was one of the first artists to appropriate miniature paintings as an authentic, personal, and contemporary artistic expression to portray women’s lives. Her style evolved over three decades after the 1979 revolution and cultural isolation in Iran. Searching for a meaningful form of self-expression, she found it in the rich tradition and refined beauty of Persian paintings, architecture, and decorative arts. The impassive look of miniature figures was well suited to her universal themes of female and male protagonists.
