North Dakota museum features Hooshang's small abstracts

Two sets of Hooshang's paintings were part of the fifth annual Small Works Exhibit & Auction at the Taube Museum of Art in Minot, N.D. The exhibit featured a collection of works that were no larger than 80 square inches. Exhibit dates were June 19 to July 31, 2012.

Hooshang displayed sets of three 6x6-inch abstract paintings: "Deep Sunset" and "Letters for Home."

Executive Director Nancy Walter said, "I started this exhibition opportunity for artists because of my love of small art. That has not changed in ensuing years, and the public also seems to enjoy the look and feel of the exhibit as well. It also doesn’t hurt that a person can always find space to display the work because of the small size."

A portion of the proceeds from the auction will help support the museum, a non-profit organization with the motto "Enriching Lives Through the Visual Arts."
