Artist Showcase & Sale

December 5 – 30

Matin Malikzada, a seventh-generation master potter, and Alibaba Awrang, a master contemporary calligrapher specializing in wall art, bring their rich artistic traditions to the Burnham Library. Displaced in 2021 due to the Taliban’s rise to power, both artists, along with their families, sought refuge and were eventually resettled in the welcoming community of Connecticut.

An opening reception on Saturday, December 9th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm with an Artist Talk beginning at 2:30 pm.

This event promises an enriching experience as both artists will share their compelling stories and provide insights into their craft.
