October 15th Event Featured Artist: Hamid Kachmar
The common thread that connects most of Hamid Kachmar’s work is intricacy. He evokes the interconnectedness, interrelations, and interdependency of the world where we live nowadays. As an example, he points to the fact that this exhibit/sale is a fundraising event in New York City to help rural families half way across the world in Morocco. Hamid will exhibit five pieces that are based on the theme of intricacy – all use a mixed techniques approach.
