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.
