The January Oklahomans for Equality (OkEq) showcase and exhibit of local artists at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center will feature the works of Behnaz Sohrabian beginning with a reception on Thursday, January 5th and continuing throughout the month.

Born and educated in Tehran, Iran, Behnaz Sohrabian started painting as a small child of 10 and continued her passion professionally from then on. She received a BS in Applied Chemistry, a BA in Painting and a Master of Arts in Art Studies. After receiving her master's degree, she immigrated to Oklahoma to be near family. Speaking about her work, Behnaz comments, "My work is about me, my life, being a woman and the struggles that women still face in this era. I paint women as people- strong people with depth and power. I paint them as delicate and sensitive-- but not weak." With her love for art, Behnaz hopes her work can inspire the array of objectified women around the globe. Behnaz has been a recognizable presence at several art exhibitions around the globe. Her works has been displayed locally, nationally and internationally; she has been lauded with awards. In closing, she says, "My aim is just to paint simply, apply easy brush stokes, emphasize on light and shadow, and the dynamics between the subject and background".

The show begins with a reception on Thursday, January 5th from 6-9pm where there will be a door prize drawn of the artist's work; the show continues throughout the month. www.okeq.org
