Join the Zohrab Information Center and St. Vartan Cathedral on Thursday, July 11 for a full and exciting summer evening of art and fellowship:
The evening will begin at 6 PM in the Guild Hall, with a presentation by photographer Hrair Hawk Khatcherian on The Fortresses of Cilicia, his new project documenting the remnants of the political life of the Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia that flourished from 1080-1375. The work, including many beautiful photographs to be shown at the presentation, will be published as a book later this year. In addition to his new project, Hawk will discuss his most recent publication, Armenia: Heaven on Earth, aerial photographs of Armenia and Artsakh he has taken between 1995-2012, and his work in Armenian Cilicia since 1997.
Hrair Hawk Khatcherian is a prolific photographer and author of 15 books, with the forthcoming book on The Fortresses of Cilicia making 16 publications! Publications include Armenia: Heaven on Earth and Khatchkar, a stunning collection of photographs of the unique Armenian artistic expression of stone-cut crosses. His work was also used for the recent Armenia! exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the resulting catalog. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear about and see his newest work!
After the talk by Hrair Hawk Khatcherian, in lieu of our usual reception, the Zohrab Information Center invites you to join the St. Vartan Armenian Cathedral Mixer on the Plaza. The $10 admission includes wine and delicious mezze. Meet and greet with members of the Armenian community and young professionals in New York City. You’ll also have the chance to meet and speak with the newly-elevated Bishop Daniel Findikyan.
During the Mixer, there will be several pieces of art on display, for sale by silent auction. These includes paintings and work by Armenian artists in the New York area. There will also be photographic prints for auction by dynamic young Armenian photographers such as Diana Markosian. Proceeds will benefit the Zohrab Information Center. If you are unable to attend but interested in supporting the work of the Center by bidding on a piece of artwork, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about the artwork that will be up for auction.
The entire evening will surely be one you don’t want to miss! Join the Zohrab Information Center and the St. Vartan Cathedral for our only summer event!
