Hooshang's work part of 2 exhibits in Idaho museum

"Fiery Runner" is one of Hooshang's paintings included in shows at the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho.

Both the summer and winter Museum Artists exhibits at the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho have included paintings by Hooshang.

The Idaho Falls museum is showing or has shown "Pinto Horse," 36x36 inches, and "Fiery Runner," 30x40 inches - both acrylic on canvas. The summer exhibit ran June 24 through Aug. 9, 2014; the winter one is scheduled for Jan. 22 to April 4, 2015.

Hooshang is known for his bold, contemporary paintings of running horses as well as other genres such as abstracts and florals. A review from an exhibit at a Florida museum said, "These (equine) works are so strong that at a glance one can hear the panting breath and the pounding hoofs of these exotic creatures."

Overlooking the Snake River, the Eastern Idaho museum is home to five galleries, a children’s interactive art learning area, an art classroom/workshop area and an eclectic gift shop. The museum offers a full calendar of events for children and adults, including gallery walks, guest lectures and hands-on art workshops.
