DESCRIPTION

Shulamit Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by regional artist Doni Silver Simons and new media work in our Project Space by Iranian artist Pouya Afshar. Both examine our core understanding of the human experience through the investigation of the passage of time. Silver Simons and Afshar unite in exploring the narrative traditions of folklore in Western and Eastern cultures. They delve into the metaphor of the artist cloistered in the studio -- the familiar trope of the solitary figure, offering the viewer a unique window into the artist’s subconscious. Climactically, each comments on the moment of inspiration. 

This artist pairing aligns closely with the mission and vision of Shulamit Gallery as an innovative art space committed to engaging locals through cross-cultural exhibitions and programming. Devoted to building bridges between our regional and global community, Shulamit Gallery focuses on the Middle East with a special interest in Iranian, Israeli, and Jewish artists.
