Sketching Drop-In Tour – Mirror Variations and Intersections
June 9, 2018, 12:00 PM-1:00 PM
GRAM presents concurrent solo exhibitions featuring Anila Quayyum Agha (Pakistani-American) and Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian (Iranian), both of whom synthesize Islamic tradition and modern abstraction into objects of great beauty and depth. The two women have immersed themselves in the distinctive geometric forms and designs of traditional Islamic cultures, which are seen in architecture and ornamentation throughout the Islamic world. The Sketching tour docent guide will share stories on both artists and their artwork as you sketch your way through both exhibitions.
The second Saturday of each month, join a docent-guided sketching tour of GRAM’s exhibitions. Sketching is a great way to look more deeply at the works of art on view as well as express your own creativity. These tours are free with admission and are open to individuals of all ages and levels of experience. Please meet at noon in the main lobby.
