Nidaa Aboulhosn exhibit at Phoenix Central Library


The first friday of the month is always an exciting time for the Phoenix art community. This Friday May 2nd will be even more eventful. The Artlink First Friday art walk of the downtown Phoenix galleries will feature one of our favorite people, Nidda Aboulhosn. We are honored that Nidaa chose Mighty Imaging to print her exhibit at the Burton Barr Central Library gallery. Her show is entitled "Conatus. Every day.". Conatus (a latin word) refers to an innate inclination of a thing to continue to exist and enhance itself. This "thing" may be mind, matter or a combination of both. That is what Nidaa's work illustrates; the basic human need to not only survive, but to thrive and enrich our world.

There is an artist reception this Friday from 7-9 PM. If you use the shuttle to visit the other downtown galleries it leaves from the library, so be sure to stop in. If you miss coming by this Friday, the exhibit will be up through the end of the month.

Burton Barr Central Library will host an exhibit of photographs by Nidaa Aboulhosn titled “Conatus. Every day.”
May 2 - 29 at the library’s @Central Gallery, 1221 N. Central Ave.

A free artist reception will be from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday, May 2.
The reception is part of Artlink First Friday, a free self-guided tour of downtown Phoenix galleries and art spaces.
Refreshments will be served.

Aboulhosn’s body of work explores the continuity of life and the will to live regardless of the circumstances.
The photographs were taken during her recent trips to Lebanon.

Phoenix Public Library is a system of 14 branch libraries and the Burton Barr Central Library.

A really outstanding photo exhibit
covering various areas of interest. Some photos truly deserve an award.

We wonder if the photographer has more images to show.
