Intersecting Landscapes

Sorour Abdollahi

September 7 – October 12

“These works depict the impact of the transient processes and the traces they leave on communities, places, buildings and people, where the external environment bears the markings of accumulated human impact, and at times disrupted by external influences and rapid pace of change. Therefore, while some paintings depict ruins which are fading and shifting, other works depict widely emerging landscape of development and dynamism. ” – Sorour Abdollahi


Ot (A Letter)

Docents will average one four hour shift a week. A docent calendar will be managed by the Gallery Director. Email for more information, and to sign up to participate.
