Now through June 27, the Governor’s Room Art Gallery is exhibiting the work of Abir Yousef.
Abir left behind her career as a dentist for that of an artist when she immigrated to the United States from Syria. She achieved a double major degree in Studio Art and Art History as an honored student and a member of the Alpha Chi Honor Society in the United States.
“I believe in the aesthetic human figure and nature as a source of beauty. As an artist, my path is to explore my interests in humanity, its creations, and all the magnificent aspects of our life.”
Yousef’s focus is on sculpting and painting, and she is drawn to Classical and Renaissance art, which she views as the cornerstone of our contemporary art world.
