Among the multitude of the participants, there are famous illustrators including Ra’na Azarmanesh, Ghazal Mazinani, Samin Omid-Yazdani, Fereshteh Jafari-Farmand, Elaheh Javanmard, Moazzameh Dehqani, Saeedeh Rezai-Badr and Sara Savalanpour

Other familiar names at the event are Ghazal Fat’hollahi, Mehrzad Sabzevari, Nazanin Tahaee, Solmaz Abdian and Nastaran Anbari.

The exhibit also features some works by the curator Rahamizadeh. In a note on the event, he said: “Sometimes, memories are richer and more colorful than actual moments. Memories come back often in static forms and one sees them against an abstract background. Recollection is a journey. To record the joy and excitement of the journey, an artist picks up a brush, contemplates and lays out colors.

In this process artists keep creating, until they see the outcome. ‘Colorful Contemplation’ is a manifestation of such memories on white paper.”

The exhibit opened July 28 and will run through August 8. Visiting hours are from 9 am-7 pm, with a midday break from 1-2 pm.

Laleh Art Gallery is located on Fatemi Street, north of Laleh Park, next to Laleh Hotel.
