The abstracts of Hooshang Khorasani, of Ruston, La., are part of an exhibition and auction at Yellowstone Arts Museum in Billings, Mont.
A set of three 20x20-inch paintings, "Lakeside Sunset," was chosen to be part of the 46th Art Exhibit and Auction at the Yellowstone Arts Museum from Jan. 23 through March 1, when the live and silent auction is scheduled from 5-11 p.m.
The event showcases a mix of styles that typifies the culture of Montana. Artwork ranges from cutting-edge contemporary to traditional landscape and Western. Museum officials say the auction is a premier showcase of art that draws collectors from across the country. Juror was Leanne Gilbertson, director of the Northcutt Steele Gallery at Montana State University-Billings.
Hooshang also had a second set of abstracts in another Montana Museum this winter: two 12x12-inch paintings titled "Subtle Harmony," shown in the 17th annual Art Exhibition and Auction at Paris Gibson Square Museum in Great Falls, Mont. The show, titled "Style, Form and Color," opened Dec. 28 with a reception Jan. 10. The auction date was Feb. 1.
Paris Gibson Square, one of Great Falls' oldest and most beloved landmarks, has served as a center for learning and growth for more than 100 years.
Hooshang maintains Hooshang Studio, with locations in Ruston and Orange County, Calif.
