Iranian art show welcomed in Brussels

TEHRAN, March 16 (MNA) -- A painting exhibition by female Iranian artists at Brussels has received positive reviews from foreign media and art elites, the Elaheh Gallery director Elaheh Javaheri said in a press release.

Entitled “Ten Iranian Female Painters, After Ten Years”, the exhibit was held from March Hôtel de Ville at Saint-Gilles of Brussels from March 4 to 14.

Progress over ten years of paintings by the ten artists was showcased at the exhibit co-sponsored by the Elaheh Gallery and Belgium-based Iranian art expert Fery Malak-Madani.

“The paintings by these ten artists went on display in Brussels in 2001 and were welcomed by visitors. We asked those painters to display their works over the past ten years,” Javaheri added.

Their viewpoints have changed naturally after the passage of time and the exhibit demonstrated their progress over the past ten years, she mentioned.

Iran has brilliant artists. One of the galleries’ responsibilities is to introduce these talented individuals to world and the Elaheh Gallery tries its best to promote Iranian arts around the world, she added.

“There is no distinction between men and women. Their artworks cannot be separated from one another and Iranian art is indebted to both male and female artists. I can say that Iranian art has developed over the past years and female artists have played a great role in this progress,” she said.

One of the participants was Arya Eqbal-Shokuhi who also owns Tehran’s Arya Gallery.

“I believe that persistence in any task is good. Unfortunately, we are accustomed to momentary perspectives about tasks and this hinders our success in our efforts. In my opinion, this exhibition is a very influential and attractive cultural event,” she mentioned.

Renowned painter Farah Osuli is another artist whose works went on display at the showcase.

“Unfortunately, Iranian visual artists do not care about the persistence in a task or the process of development in artwork. Nobody cares about cultural events or artistic groups that were formed ten years ago,” she lamented.

Paintings by Firuzeh Amini, Mina Qaziani, Maryam Khazaii, Masumeh Zafari, Manijeh Rahim Tabrizi, Maryam Shirinlu and Maryam Hashemi went on display at the showcase.
