Maumee Valley Country Day School Announces Wolfe Gallery Exhibition
The Wolfe Gallery at Maumee Valley Country Day School is featuring an exhibition of artwork by Bahu S. Shaikh M.D. and Steven J. Athanas. This exhibition will be on display from Oct. 19 – Dec. 17, 2015, from 8:30am-4:30pm Monday-Friday.
Dr. Bahu Shaikh will exhibit watercolor and acrylics and Steven J. Athanas will show his mixed media. Bahu Shaikh was encouraged to paint with oils as a child in Karachi, Pakistan. As an adult, after coming to America, he used painting as an escape from the sickness and disease that surrounded him as he did post graduate training in hematology and oncology. He finds inspiration in local landscapes and architecture. Steven J. Athanas is a local artist who has been making art and music since junior high school. His 2-D and 3-D work is eclectic, whimsical, and often humorous. He works in multiple mediums, from found objects to tissue paper to whatever's at hand. He also integrates his 'pomes' (his altered term for the lyrical stories he writes) into many of his works.
A reception will be held on Friday, Oct. 23, 2015, 5:30 – 7:00pm in the Wolfe Gallery, on the campus of Maumee Valley Country Day School, 1715 S Reynolds Rd, Toledo, Oh, 43614. This reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public. Prints of Dr. Bahu Shaikh's work are available for purchase.
