Hooshang's work at The Frame-Up during Holiday Arts Tour

At Ruston's annual Holiday Arts Tour, three genres of Hooshang's work will be shown at The Frame-Up in downtown Ruston, 102 N. Vienna.  Samples of his work published by Dianoche Designs will be shown as well. 

Equine, abstract and floral originals and prints will be available Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 21-23.  This is the first time Hooshang's artwork will be available only at The Frame-Up.  Last year, his work was shown at both his own studio at 1001 Cedar Creek Road and the downtown location; in prior years, it was featured at his studio.

"This will allow us to be more of a part of the main downtown walking loop for the entire length of the tour," Hooshang said. "I hope to see many of you out and about on these three days."

Thursday's tour is part of Ruston's Open House that celebrates the start of the holiday season.

Hours for the tour are as follows:

Thursday – 5-8 p.m.
Friday – 4-8 p.m. and
Saturday – 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Sample products on hand from Dianoche Designs will include placemats and blankets, in addition to a portfolio of all of Hooshang's work that Dianoche carries.

Holiday venues, other sites are showing Hooshang's work

Holiday exhibitions, a museum auction and two new galleries are featuring Hooshang Khorasani's abstract and equine works this fall and into the future.

His abstracts and running horses are being displayed in the "Presents" exhibition at artspace in Shreveport from Nov. 8 through Jan. 18. "Presents" is a juried holiday gallery show featuring work of 13 area artists.

artspace is affiliated with the Shreveport Regional Arts Council and located in downtown Shreveport at 710 Texas St. Admission to artspace is free – Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday noon to 5 p.m.

At another holiday-themed event – Ruston's annual Holiday Arts Tour – Hooshang's florals will be shown, in addition to his abstracts and equines. This year for the first time, Hooshang's artwork will be available only at The Frame-Up in downtown Ruston, rather than at his personal studio. Dates that his work can be seen at this venue are Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 21-23.

In addition, a two-painting set of Hooshang's abstract works was chosen for - and sold at - the 22nd Benefit Art Auction at the Attleboro (Mass.) Arts Museum. Online bidding was Oct. 11-31 at www.biddingforgood.com/attleboroartsmuseum2013; the live event was Nov. 2. Hooshang's paintings, "Happy Twist," are 6-by-6 inches each, acrylic-mixed media on canvas.

The two new galleries with which he is affiliated are Legacy Gallery in Hot Springs, Ark., and Watershed Gallery in Ridgefield, Conn. Both abstract and equine work will be shown at Legacy, located at 804 Central Ave. Watershed Gallery is featuring Hooshang's abstract work in its Artist at Large program.
