    Celebration of the Art of Calligraphy: Messages of Peace and Reassurance

    Musical Bridges Around the World presents “Celebration of the Art of Calligraphy: Messages of Peace and Reassurance” featuring works by artist Salma Arastu.

     

    Drawing on her Indian heritage and Islamic spirituality background, Arastu combines expertise in Arabic calligraphy with contemporary painting methods. She creates large, evocative canvases that invite viewers into quiet contemplation on texts from the Quran, the poet Rumi and other sources. Her use of thin washes of acrylic, geometric patterns and other elements result in a sense of deep mystery and profound color.

     

    Opening reception 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, April 21. Exhibition continues through Aug. 20. Live music, wine and bites.
