SCDC member and Art Committee co-chairman Haig Messerlian explains the goal:
“The goal is to create awareness of the tremendous talent that exists in Armenia, and to give the opportunity to people here in Southern California to have one or more of these unique, breathtaking pieces adorn their walls or be displayed in their homes, To have the work of nine artists—several of who will be present at this extraordinary exhibition—is a show of force of Armenian talent.”
The Art Exhibition committee, co-chaired by Hermine Janoyan and Haig Messerlian, comprises: Ani Aivazian, Tomik Alexanyan, Ara Arzoumanian, Sonia Babayan, Ara Babayan, Raffi Elmajian, Sam Ekizian, Aleen Khanjian, Jenny Kiljian, Silva Nazaretian, Aline Patatian, Krikor Satamian, and Seeroon Yeretzian.
