3/20/21: Today Mash Gallery held its indoor/outdoor Opening Reception for the talented painter Maggi Hodge. This solo exhibition runs from March 20- April 24, 2021

There was an outdoor open bar, red carpet style photo area, outdoor lounge area with free face masks, live musicians and many people smiling and appreciative of a live cultural event, all under COVID compliance.

Maggi Hodge's use of bold dramatic colors and adventurous black brush strokes is a reflection of her view of "our current state of living, which are over loaded and fragmented with superfluous and irrelevant babble and material objects"

MASH Gallery, founded by Haleh Mashian in 2019, with the desire to provide a place for artists to showcase their innovative artistic abilities.

The MASH Gallery features figurative and thematic contemporary exhibitions from many local and international artists, both established and emerging.
