    Art Show of Shahla Arbabi

    Washington DC Thursday - March 8, 2012     02:01 PM

    FLY ZONE strives to express the voice of the civilian during conflict. Each image is powerful and, at times, painful to consider. Here the silent witness of war is considered, and as viewers we are forced to consider their defenselessness and fragility. It is in that reflection that we begin to empathize and acknowledge our own vulnerability and theirs. Shahla Arbabi is a painter and mixed media artist whose work has been featured in over thirty solo and over forty group exhibitions. She has exhibited widely in Europe and the United States, both in private galleries and in such prestigious venues as the U.S. National Academy of Sciences. Her work has been the subject of numerous studies of contemporary painting and can be found in more than two dozen private and public collections, including the permanent holdings of the Arthur M. Sackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, of the Friends of Art and Preservation in Embassies, as well as The Washington Post and of the Carnegie Institute.
