Hooshang's equine work displayed in La Jolla
Hooshang will participate at the La Jolla (Calif.) Festival of the Arts from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 26-27.
This 24th annual event welcomes guests to enjoy the work of nearly 200 of what the show organizers term "the West’s finest artists." Additionally, the show features live music, a silent auction and much more in beautiful coastal San Diego.
Hooshang will be in Booth #727 and will be showing equine paintings.
Concerning Hooshang’s running horses series, consider this excerpt from “Gallery Talk: Conversations with Lee Malerich” in a description of The Ormond (Fla.) Memorial Art Museum's exhibition of “Four-Footed”:
“… These magnificent large-scale acrylics scream 'undomesticated' as they roar, head-on across the canvas. (Hooshang’s) choice of color and kinetic, yet exacting brush strokes exacerbate the motion study. These works are so strong that at a glance one can hear the panting breath and the pounding hoofs of these exotic creatures.”
The festival is located in the La Jolla district of San Diego. It is easily accessible from I-5, I-805 and CA-52 and offers plenty of free parking. From I-5, north or south bound, exit Genesee Avenue and turn east (away from the coast). The festival is approximately one mile ahead. Additional info can be found at www.lajollaartfestival.org. Admission is $10.
