Hooshang's paintings are titled "Color Storm XXII" and "Color Storm Symphony III."
Ruston's 2011 Holiday Arts Tour will begin Friday, Nov. 18, at 4 p.m. with an Art Crawl through downtown Ruston and some of the surrounding artist studios, including Hooshang Studio at 1001 Cedar Creek Road. Hooshang Studio and other sites will also be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 19-20.
"This is a wonderful time for everyone to drop by my studio to see the artwork up close and personal," Hooshang said. "Plus, it will give all the tour participants and the artists a chance to interact with each other."
In addition to original abstracts, Hooshang offers several other genres, including limited-edition prints, florals, figuratives, running horses, landscapes and still lifes.
