PERSIAN GARDEN, by Artists Monir & Mehdi Ghanbeigy, opened on Friday with warm accolades on a brisk November evening. This curated exhibit of almost fifty porcelain/ceramic works of art were imported from Iran and inspired by ancient and modern-day history, throughout various Asian & European cultures. With each piece comes a specific story or poetic reference.
The works were complimented with Persian and Middle Eastern sweets, hot tea and a variety of wines to taste. The SZ Gallery was quickly filled with art collectors and enthusiasts, resulting in the sale of thirteen pieces on opening night. SZ is proud to be the first gallery in the US to show the works of such renowned artists.

PERSIAN GARDEN will be exhibited at the SZ Gallery until December 31.
