Gallery 817 presented a 25 year retrospective of sculptor Soraya Sarah Nazarian’s work from March 3 - May 1, 2011
"If stone carving is one of humanity's oldest artforms, it is also one that has long since fallen out of favor. Soraya Nazarian embraces the discipline fully, in all its old-fashioned pleasures and challenges, reminding us of its antiquated traditions as well as its engaging, mid-20th century modernist iterations.
"In 2000, Los Angeles sculptor Soraya Nazarian traveled to an artists workshop in Pietrasanta, Italy, a city made famous for its marble quarries by none other than Michelangelo."
(LOS ANGELES) Gallery 817 will be presenting a 25-year survey of sculptor Soraya Sarah Nazarian’s work in Strength Revealed, opening March 10 at 817 N. Hilldale Ave. in West Hollywood.
