About This Event
The Karabakh Foundation presents an exhibition honoring the late Azerbaijani painter and major cultural figure Kamil Najafzade at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery, from August 28 through September 27. Azerbaijani Artist in Every Sense: Kamil Najafzade (1929-2011) features some 50 paintings by the painter displayed in space donated by Pepco, as well as didactic materials demonstrating the artist’s love of his family and of his country.
Presented to Washington, D.C., audiences just a year after the artist’s passing, Azerbaijani Artist in Every Sense seeks to convey not only Kamil Najafzade’s talents as a painter but also his role as an Azerbaijani artist and citizen revealing the world around him—and as a family man who created an atmosphere of creativity and love for his wife and children.
The opening reception will be held on September 5, from 6:30-9:00PM at the Pepco Edison Place Gallery. Wine and light hors d’oeuvres will be served.
