Description

Join two award-winning artists, Arabic-Persian calligrapher Arash Shirinbab and ceramicist Forrest Lesch-Middelton, as they share the results of their unique dialogue, and celebrate the power of art to build community. View the works and learn more about the project HERE.

This event celebrates the collaboration between Arabic-Persian calligrapher Arash Shirinbab and ceramicist Forrest Lesch-Middelton which ​has ​resulted in a series of calligraphy-inscribed ceramic tiles, vessels, and installations revolving around the interplay of hospitality, morality and justice.

Featuring multicultural multi-course dinner, artist talks and community conversation

Artworks are for sale and the proceeds will help the artists to continue working together and establish a sustainable collaboration.

This is an invitation only private event. If you are interested in sharing our work with your network and invite friends to see the exhibition, there will be a public opening reception on Saturday, October 28, 4 – 6 p.m.. Details are included HERE.

* This project is made possible in partnership with Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California (ICCNC) and by a grant from The Creative Work Fund, a program of the Walter and Elise Haas Fund that also is supported by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
