A selection of 282 artworks by artists from different generations will be showcased online from 31 July to 22 September on the website and Instagram of Golestan Gallery, Lili Golestan announced in a press release.

“The exhibit has been a good venue to introduce young talented artists living in different cities of Iran. A good number of artists will be taking part in this edition. Artists from other cities especially Isfahan stand on top, then comes artists from Shiraz, Mashhad, Rasht, and Kerman,” she added.

This year, the people of Isfahan sent the highest number of artworks; about a third of the works came from there, she said, adding that works from Shiraz, Mashhad, Rasht, and Kerman will also be introduced.

She also said that several private collectors have also displayed their works by veteran artists such as Parviz Kalantari, Reza Maafi, Parvaneh Etemadi, Nasser Ovissi, Kambiz Derambakhsh, and Faramarz Pialaram. 

Works by veterans from the private collectors’ collections alongside works by members of the younger generation have always helped encourage the youth, she noted

The main approach of the exhibition, from its very beginning, has been to encourage people to buy works of art, and since about a decade ago, when the price of artworks jumped sharply, attempts have been made to adjust prices to promote the culture of buying works of art, Golestan noted.

She added that the works are on sale at reasonable prices, and hoped that these difficult days would end soon and everything would return as it was previously.
