Hooshang's abstracts, equines, florals displayed in 3 states, 4 shows

Artwork by Hooshang was on display in three states and four exhibits from Jan. 31 through mid-April, 2013, including a solo show in Bossier City, La.

Three of Hooshang's abstracts in the "Color Storm" exhibit
* "Color Storm," which included both abstracts and equine works, was featured in 1800 Prime Steakhouse at Bossier City's Boomtown Casino from Jan. 31 through mid-April.

This new art venue is a partnership between the Bossier Arts Council and Boomtown Casino committed to promoting work of regional artists.
"Equine Energy"
* Another of Hooshang's equine works was exhibited March 2 through April 14 at the Western Spirit Art Show at the Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days Old West Museum. "Equine Energy," a 36x48-inch acrylic painting, is from Hooshang's series of running horses.

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.

"Window Bouquet"
* Another Hooshang painting was part of the annual "Flower Show" March 21-24 at the Attleboro (Mass.) Arts Museum. This year's theme was "Wings: Spring is in the Air."

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.
