Join us on January 31 for the opening of our exhibition, Reverberating Echoes: Contemporary Art Inspired by Traditional Islamic Art, curated by Carol Bier. This timely exhibition highlights the work of seven American artists of diverse backgrounds who draw inspiration from Islamic visual heritage. Through their artwork, these artists – Muslim and non-Muslim, women and men, residing in Blue states or Red states – remind us of the beauty and meaning that we can find by reaching across borders of religion and culture.
Doug Adams Gallery, 2465 Le Conte Avenue, Berkeley. Street parking available.
