One of our favorite art book dealers is having an opening tonight as part of SOWA First Friday. I’m going to be there (and more importantly so is the artist) and I hope you will join us.

Here are the details:


Vision Bound Unbound: The Drawings of Alireza Darvish


Opening Reception: 7 October  5:30-8pm     

Exhibition: 7 October – 29 November  

 Alireza Darvish

Ars Libri Ltd.

500 Harrison Avenue

Boston, MA 02118


Alireza Darvish is a contemporary Iranian artist currently living in Germany. Some twenty years ago, he began a series of finished watercolors and drawings exploring the metaphorical meanings of  the book in the modern world, particularly in the context of totalitarian politics. Darkly surreal, whimsical, and provocative, the series is a testimony of gratitude to the freedom and hope that books offer the imagination, and a commentary on the refuge they provide. The series now numbers more than eighty works, nearly all of which are included for sale in this exhibition.

A catalogue to accompany the exhibition will be published and available from Ars Libri for $25.  For more information, please email us: or telephone us: 617 357-5212.
