Gabbeh Exhibit at Jahan Gallery

A special collection of 18 'gabbehs', pile rugs traditionally hand-woven by the nomads in the Zagros Mountains in Iran, will be on show at Tehran's Jahan Gallery.
Graphic artist and carpet designer Shadi Taki from Isfahan has brought her art to Tehran this time, said the Iranian Academy of Arts on its website honar.ac.ir.
Jahan Gallery at Naqsh-Jahan Art Research Center affiliated to Iranian Academy of Arts, is the venue of Taki's upcoming exhibition, titled 'Shadi's (shadi in Farsi literally means happiness) Gabbehs in Memory of Parviz Kalantari.'
The exhibition will open on August 23 and will run through September 21.
Taki has dedicated her exhibition to the well-known painter and illustrator Parviz Kalantari (1931-2016) who had a key role in promotion of Iranian nomadic art through his paintings and writings. He was famous for his indigenous drawings of Iranian nomadic life.
The exhibition will be open between 10 am and 5 pm from Saturday to Wednesday, except on holidays, at the gallery located at No 2169, Valiasr Street, southwest of Saee Park.
Gabbeh is known as 'gava' in Kurdish and Luri languages and is also called 'khersak' in the Bakhtiari dialect. It is characterized by abstract, often geometric designs on open fields of color. The craft is popular among nomads in and around the Zagros Mountain range, including Kurdish, Luri and Qashqai people, and is usually crafted by women.
