Hooshang's 'Color Storm Symphony' in Shreveport's 'Improptu' show

"Color Storm Symphony" by Hooshang is part of the "Impromptu" exhibit through April 23 at artspace, a gallery sponsored by the Shreveport Regional Arts Council. This exhibition showcases area artists in connection with a visit by the chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts.

"Impromptu" opened March 10 with a 5:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. reception. The exhibit gathered original works of more than 200 Northwest Louisiana artists. It's located in the upstairs "coolspace" gallery.

One person who viewed the show said, "Like a 17th-century art salon, the works on display are packed tight, floor-to-ceiling. It's a phenomenal exhibit for anyone wishing to get more familiar with our region's working artists."
