Exhibition of Armenian-American Artist Arthur Pinajian’s Works Held at the Western Prelacy

On Thursday, October 12, 2017, a special exhibition of Armenian-American artist Arthur Pinajian’s works opened at the Western Prelacy “Dikran and Zarouhie Der Ghazarian” Hall. The exhibit, which was held under the auspices of H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, and organized by Stephanie’s Art Gallery, featured thirty rarely seen works, in particular the artist’s mid-century abstractions and late lyrical landscapes. Members of clergy, Executive Council Chair Mr. Vahe Hovaguimian, and art appreciators were in attendance.

The program began with welcoming remarks by Ladies Auxiliary member Mrs. Vania Babikian, who then invited Stephanie’s Art Gallery Director, Ms. Linda Stepanian, to give an overview of the artist and the exhibit. Ms. Stepanian first thanked the Prelate, and then spoke on Arthur Pinajian’s life, approach, and the value and distinctiveness of his creations, noting that he is regarded as one of the greatest artists of his time.

The Prelate greeted the guests and commended the organizers, noting that the exhibit is a fitting tribute to Armenian Cultural Month. His Eminence commended the efforts of Stephanie’s Art Gallery in promoting and celebrating Armenian art and artists, and conclude by affirming the Prelacy’s endless continual support of the arts.

Throughout the exhibit, guests enjoyed a Wine and Cheese Reception hosted by the Western Prelacy Ladies Auxiliary.

The exhibit continued the following day.
