Rajaa Gharbi: Cauldron Delights
Gallery 110, Seattle, WA - May 7 – 30
Better known as a poet outside the US, Rajaa Gharbi is widely published in Europe and North Africa. The Tunisian-American artist’s Pioneer Square solo debut typifies her preoccupation with the interface of Arabic calligraphy and organic natural imagery. Apprenticed as a young woman with a traditional puppet theatre troupe, she had to learn everything: painting, sculpture, shape and pattern. Gharbi is included in numerous surveys of African diaspora artists.
