 Role of Art

On the sidelines of the opening, Reza Fallah, calligrapher, calligraphic painter, musician, and the director of Fallah Gallery said various works by well-known artists were presented and were received “with alacrity by viewers, which stirs up excitement among us” as well.   

On the role of art in people’s lives he said “these exemplary creations can remedy the soul. It is therefore necessary and feasible to further expand the spectrum of arts within the daily lives of people. Arts inspire fresh perceptions and feed the soul; that is precisely why all through the annals of history, governing bodies have treasured artists and acted as patrons of the arts.”
