|Three of Hooshang's abstracts in the "Color Storm" exhibit|
This new art venue is a partnership between the Bossier Arts Council and Boomtown Casino committed to promoting work of regional artists.
The Western Spirit show featured more than 100 artists from across the country. A special feature of opening night festivities was the Vandewark Miniature Art exhibit. Hooshang had two small abstract sets in that show.
* Two more Hooshang abstracts were part of the Masur Museum of Art's fourth annual "Off the Wall" event in Monroe, La. This silent auction of art by local and national artists was hosted by the Twin City Art Foundation on April 5. Hooshang's paintings were "Subtle Sunset" and "Color Flurry," both 8x8-inch acrylic/mixed media on canvas.
Proceeds from the fundraiser support exhibitions and educational programs at the Masur Museum.
Hooshang's work was a 14x17-inch acrylic painting, "Window Bouquet."
The show is one of the museum's largest and most anticipated annual fundraising events. Attendees come to kindle their own creativity, to support arts programming or simply to revel in the promise of spring.
