February 21-23 the Paul Family Hall was transformed in to a warm and intimate gallery decorated by the beautiful and unique artwork of renowned artist Lilit Soghomonyan. Lilit was invited by Saint John Armenian Church for her San Francisco debut solo exhibition.
Friday night was the official exhibition opening and reception, Fr. Mesrop introduced Lilit to the audience and expressed his gratitude to her for sharing her talent. He also added that during an interview with Lilit, she has expressed that any work of art is an honest expression of an artist’s inner emotions, a feeling that could be positive or negative. Also she added that the lines and colors are methods or ways to reflect the thought of an artist and hopefully the audience will understand and have the same thoughts which are very important.
Fr. Mesrop also thanked all the volunteers who made this event possible, thanked Mr. and Mrs. Paul and Ani Ayanian for their generous contribution and hard work, and thanked Mr. Zareh Samurkashian for donating the easels.
Born in Yerevan (Armenia), she graduated from the Fine Arts Institute in 1991, Yerevan (Armenia). She is a member of Artist's Union since 1991, Yerevan (Armenia). She has had solo exhibitions in US, Germany, Armenia and Russia, and group exhibitions all over Europe and Middle East.
It was an honor to have Lilit and her art work exhibit at St. John, and we are happy to announce that a portion of the proceeds from the sales were donated to Syrian-Armenian relief fund in the amount of $1,056.
We wish Lilit a safe trip and success in her future endeavors.
