Musical Bridges Around the World presents “Celebration of the Art of Calligraphy: Messages of Peace and Reassurance,” featuring works by artist Salma Arastu. Drawing on her Indian heritage and Islamic spirituality background, Arastu combines expertise in Arabic calligraphy with contemporary painting methods.

Her use of thin washes of acrylic, geometric patterns and other elements results in a sense of deep mystery and profound color.

The opening reception will have live music, wine, and bites. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 20.
