Artist Reception: Al-Abboud at Scarlet Ibis Gallery

Andalus

On Saturday, January 6, 2017 from 6pm to 10pm, Scarlet Ibis Gallery presents the Artist Reception for a new exhibit of paintings by local artist Al-Abboud.

Al-Abboud’s work reflects his studies in architecture, which preceded his formal training in art. His work is large, bold, and dynamic, with patterns and symbols reflecting the buildings and art of countries where he has found his greatest inspiration.

From the artist’s statement: “After spending two years as an architecture student, I realized that I wanted to be an artist instead of an architect as my family wished, even though it meant burning bridges and relinquishing emotional and financial support. I accepted the sacrifice as the price all artists must endure, and I forged into a new way of living as an artist.”
