Hooshang Khorasani exhibits in 'The Art of the Horse'

One of Hooshang's latest exhibits was at the 9th annual New Jersey Equine Artists' Association show, "The Art of the Horse," from Sept. 14 to Oct. 25, 2008.

The national juried exhibit included both paintings and sculpture at the Johnson Gallery at Somerset Art Association.

NJEAA director, Sheila Barnes, said, "New Jersey’s state animal is the horse, and as such this spot is a hotbed of folks interested in this wonderful animal. The show is always a success as that group turns out in full force." Founded in 1999, NJEAA promotes equine art and artists in New Jersey. Through invitational and national juried shows and workshops, the group generates interest in equine art among art lovers, horse enthusiasts and the general public.

Hooshang's painting "Equine Exuberance" was chosen for the show postcard (see above).
