Focus on Wildlife at IAF Exhibit

An exhibition of the Tooma Art Group which comprises a number of Iranian artists concerned about environmental issues, opened in Tehran on Friday.
Tooma Art Group Exhibition with focus on Iran’s wildlife opened at Bahar Gallery of the Iranian Artists Forum (IAF) and will run through May 5, according to the website of Iranian Illustrators Society (casi.ir).
Organized under the auspices of the society, the exhibition features paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and tapestries.
Part of the event’s proceeds will go towards environmental projects such as wildlife water holes -- an important habitat component for a variety of wildlife providing drinking water for many species, and facilities for treatment of animals.
Participating artists include illustrators Negin Ehtesabian and Pejman Rahimizadeh, Ilgar Rahimi, Saeedeh Rezaee Badr, Saba Arabshahi, Mahnaz Saadatkia, Anis Soltani, Mahnaz Soleymannejad, as well as Afsaneh Khorramshahi and Alireza Owji who have participated in earlier charity events.
Nazanin Tahaee, Maryam Tahmasbi, Somayeh Alipour, Moslem Alamzadeh, Nastaran Anbari, Fereshteh Jafarimand and Mohanna Fazli are among others attending the event.
Pedram Kazerooni is one of the artists at the event preoccupied with environmental issues. In his exhibition ‘We Are All Part of the Earth,’ held a year ago in Tehran, he tried to help raise public awareness about wildlife and the necessity to protect it.   
The current exhibition also features works by painters Asal Hazeqi and Leyla Refahi, as well as by graphic artist and photographer Homa Rostami, children’s book illustrator Mojgan Saeedian, graphic journalist Kamal Tabatabai, animator and caricaturist Sara Tayebzadeh and photographer Arezou Amidi.
Tooma Art Group has created an Instagram account (instagram.com/tooma_art_group) where a number of artworks are available for sale. The proceeds are used for environmental issues.
Iranian Artists Forum is located on Iranshahr Street.
