2 of Hooshang's genres in 2 museum exhibitions

Two of Hooshang's genres are currently or have been part of museum exhibits in Montana and Massachusetts.

"Equine Allure," a 30x40-inch painting of a running horse, is being displayed during the 49th Art Exhibit and Auction at the Yellowstone Arts Museum in Billings, Montana. The event runs from Jan. 19 to March 4.
The exhibit showcases a mix of styles that typifies the culture of Montana. Artwork ranges from cutting-edge contemporary to traditional landscape and Western. Museum officials said the event is a premier showcase of art that draws collectors from across the country. Juror was Kenneth L. Schuster, director and chief curator at the Brinton Museum in Big Horn, Wyoming.

"Nature's Poetry," a 24x30-inch floral, was exhibited in the Members Show at Attleboro (Massachusetts) Arts Museum from Dec. 9 to Feb. 2.

Attleboro Arts Museum is a community-based arts organization working to educate and promote art in the community with a wide range of programs.

Hooshang's work part of 2 exhibits in Idaho museum

Four of Hooshang's paintings were shown in two exhibits at the Art Museum of Eastern Idaho in Idaho Falls.
The ARTmart exhibit began Nov. 10, and Art Collective began Nov. 17. Both ran through Dec. 30.

Three of Hooshang's abstracts were part of ARTmart: "Sunset Harmony" and "All Dressed Up," both 8x8 inches, and "Harmony," 6x6 inches. The 24x30-inch floral "Romantic Bouquet" was in Art Collective.

ARTmart was part of the larger holiday exhibit Beaux Cadeaux. Art Collective is the museum's annual juried year-end exhibit, an homage to art organizations, groups and guilds that nurture professional and artistic development.

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.
