2 Hooshang paintings at Montana museum
The Paris Gibson Square Museum of Art selected two of Hooshang Khorasani's paintings for its 19th annual Art Exhibition and Auction in Great Falls, Mont.
Beginning March 14,2016, an exhibition of all art selections was presented in three of the Square’s main-floor exhibition galleries, with the auction following April 9.
Hooshang's works are both acrylic on canvas: "Elegant Runner," a 36x36-inch abstract, and "Colors of Nature," a 24x36-inch floral.
Paris Gibson Square, one of Great Falls' oldest and most beloved landmarks, has served as a center for learning and growth for more than 100 years. The sandstone structure was completed in 1896 and served 34 years as Central High School and 45 years as Paris Gibson Junior High before closing its doors in 1975.
In 1977, community volunteers renovated and reopened the historic building as Paris Gibson Square. Since then, the museum has provided a dynamic program of exhibitions, classes, lectures, tours and performances designed to nurture the region's creative spirit.
Proceeds from the auction went to support the museum’s exhibitions and related educational programs.
