Two Art Exhibitions of interest. Middle Eastern, Christian Art in Paris and pre-Christian art, The VIKINGS, in Ontario.
Maybe this exhibition will come to the USA in the future. Sometimes that happens.
"In a landmark exhibition, the Arab World Institute (IMA) in Paris is showcasing works, frescoes and scripts recounting the 2,000-year history of Christians in the Middle East – a heritage under threat in a region scarred by war and persecution.
The exhibition, “Oriental Christians: 2,000 Years of History”, was inaugurated by French President Emmanuel Macron and his Lebanese counterpart Michel Aoun at the IMA in central Paris on Monday, and will run until January 14. With Christian communities in the Middle East facing mounting threats, the show offers a timely reminder of the hardships they endure in the cradle of Christianity.
But it’s not just contemporary conflicts that have made Oriental Christians stand out. As the exhibition sets out to prove, their multi-faceted culture, rich heritage and long history have been instrumental in shaping the Middle East (Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Israel and the Palestinian territories) of today."

To comment, about sales, distribution contact me.
Original artwork, as opposed to a print of any type, is quite wonderful and by far the most sumptuous and "tactile" of all.
I do accept and appreciate art commissions.

I have changed my website template. Older archive pages have yet (if ever) to be updated. There might be font discrepancies and other small issues. As well, so many people have cell phones theses days where screen sizes and technical capabilities vary. Do view NOTES on a computer screen for the very best visual presentation.
