When the East Meets the West
I am very excited to announce that local artist Ezzat Abouleish, M.D. will share his art exhibit "When the East Meets the West" with us beginning Monday, August 3 through September 30th. Dr. Abouleish will informally talk about his unique life and fascinating artwork with the public at the Opening Reception from 6 - 8:30 p.m. on Monday, August 3 in the Library's Internet Cafe. His goal is to bring the East and West closer by showing the American people the beauty of Arabic calligraphy and by displaying how he has introduced Western rules of composition into Islamic Art. Our library owns three books by Dr. Abouleish, an Egyptian American Doctor of Anesthesiology and Professor Emeritus from the Univeristy of Texas Medical School, Houston. Please stop by to see this interesting and beautiful art exhibit!
