Meet the force behind the Lotus ART Gallery : Our Curator and Main resident artist, Mariam Qureshi.
With the help and support of Eyvan's Book Cafe, Mariam turned her studio into a cozy little commercial art gallery for local artists in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.
She works in social security and interior design, yet still finds time to paint and now volunteers to curate the lotus art gallery. Follow her on instagram every monday, as she starts up a new art project!
Mariam's Short Bio :
Mariam Qureshi's art work explores contemporary landmarks, figure and surreal realities with meanings that shift from concrete to an exploration of her memory or thought, resulting in art with metaphoric movement and illusion. Mariam creates dreamlike images in which fiction and reality meet motion and thought. Mariam is a strong supporter of local art and artists and has recently opened her studio to the local community, as a commercial art gallery, which has become home to over 60 local artists from Edmonton Alberta Canada.
The lotus art gallery hosts a public art exhibit reception party with fresh new art in a thought provoking exhibit every last friday of each month. The gallery offers fundraising for charitable causes, art rental, art parties, music or art lessons, interior design consultation for all the art lovers and free studio space for the talented and commited creatives.
