Detail of Lost in Dream (2016). Ali Fathollahi
Notices and press releases timed for First Friday and Preview Thursday are out and around. One catching my eye is for Ali Fathollahi's exhibition, ADOLESCENCE, at Sin City Gallery. The Iranian-American artist, who recently completed a ZAP 8 public art project, is trained in illustration, graphic arts, and fine art at the Azad University, Tehran. He will continue developing his contemporary Persian diaspora by getting his second Masters degree, this time at UNLV. From the release:
