The works by American artist of Azeri origin Yaver Rzayev from “Könlüm keçir Qarabagdan” (“My heart is in Karabakh”) collection went on show in Washington as part of the 2012 Art Exhibition and Sale.
All proceeds from sales will be sent to the Washington-based Duke Ellington School of Arts.
The exhibition features the following works by Yaver Rzayev: “Askeran fortress", "Shah Bulagy", "Sarsang Reservoir" and "Jidir duzu" worth 10,000 U.S. dollars.
The Georgetown office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is hosting an Art Exhibition and Sale to benefit the Duke Ellington School of the Arts (DESA). The three-day event kicked off June 22 at the Washington Harbour in a space provided by MRP Realty, the managing company for The Washington Harbour complex.
A group of more than 30 local artists have contributed their works including large scale paintings, sculpture, ceramics and other mediums. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these works will be donated to DESA art programs through CBRB Cares Foundation, the charitable arm of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
Commenting on his participation in the charity, Yavar Rzayev said: "Having received the invitation to participate in 2012 Art Exhibition and Sale, I have decided to present several works from “Könlüm keçir Qarabagdan” series. I would like to share these works with the audience, not only by image on the canvas, but also by the history behind it, inaccessibility of Karabakh, the place where I was born, and where I can get only in my dreams. The ability of children to express themselves in creativity will play a big role in their overall development. "
The exhibition «Könlüm keçir Qarabagdan» by Yaver Rzayev to date has been presented in Washington, Pennsylvania and California.
