Event Description

Join us for an evening of cocktails and creative community as we celebrate the opening of Project Atrium: Anila Guayyum Agha. Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha uses light and cast shadow to transform the Atrium Gallery into a place that alludes to Islamic sacred spaces dense with geometric ornamentation and pattern. Inspired by traditional Islamic architectural motifs, Agha creates a laser-cut steal lantern that conjures the designs of historic sites and mosques and designs a space of peace and tranquility.
