Stephanie Vovas

Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, based in Los Angeles, CA, Stephanie Vovas is a winner of a bronze PX3 2011, and a PDN Faces Contest Winner, 2011. She has been in numerous group shows in the past few years, including MOPLA/Smashbox, and is also in private collections.

She graduated from the University of Maine/Maine Photographic Workshops, in 1993. It is there she discovered her photo idols: Helmut Newton, Larry Sultan, Gary Winogrand, Stephen Shore, and learned to express herself through her photography. She was heavily drawn to experimenting with photo processes, rather than formal studio work. She has an extensive body of Polaroid work in addition to her recent digital work.

Stephanie makes photographs of people that tell stories, and show a side of the person no one has ever seen, be it real or made-up. Private moments, transformation, beauty, sensuality, and uncertainty are what she is interested in photographically. She lives in Los Angeles with her boyfriend Tom.

Assyrian Aid Society

Presents

Mesopotamia Art and Artists in Diaspora

Artists reception will be on Oct 22 at 6.00 PM.
Exhibition Opens Thursday Oct.13 thru Oct. 31, 2011

Featuring work from Artists:

Paul Batou
Qais Al Sindy
Odette Tomik

The Art show will feature Mesopotamian artists from Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Turkey.

Mesopotamians are the remaining Christian minorities (also known as the Assyrian, Chaldean and Syriac) in the region. Through out the history, they were forced to leave their land and migrate to various regions around the world, due to horrors of Ethnic-cleansing massacres and wars, in search of democracy and freedom.

Mesopotamian artists representing their passion for freedom, peace, beauty of nature and different aspects from the region through a variety of cultural subjects and mediums, believe that the whole world is a mixture of colors that forms a harmony with love and peace which should be preserved for all humanity.

The event is sponsored by Assyrian Aid Society of America which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to helping people with their basic needs such as food, shelter, healthcare in the Ninveh region. This event is to promote Mesopotamian Art, culture and values. All proceeds are dedicated for building schools, promoting education
