Norikian at Hamazkayin Art Gallery

The opening ceremony of the exhibition of Lebanese-Armenian painter Krikor Norikian’s works was held on February 25, 2010, at 6:30 p.m., at the Hamazkayin Lucy Tutunjian Art Gallery.

The opening of the exhibit, which features Norikian’s oil and watercolor paintings, was attended by numerous Armenian and non-Armenian artists and art lovers.

The opening speech was given by Carla Tutunjian, who presented Norikian’s brief biography. She said that Norikian emigrated to Paris in 1976, because of the Lebanese Civil War, and returned to Lebanon in 2003. He has held numerous critically acclaimed exhibitions in Lebanon, Canada, France, Germany and the United States. Norikian has received the St. Mesrob Mashdots Award by the Catholicos of the Holy See of Cilicia of the Armenian Orthodox Church, Aram I, in recognition of his significant input in the arts.

Tutunjian explained that Norikian has a series of paintings that, through the black eyes of women and children, depict the Armenian Genocide and the experiences of those who were subjected to it.

In his speech, Norikian thanked the Hamazkayin Armenian Educational and Cultural Society for organizing the gathering at the Lucy Tutunjian Art Gallery. He said that this exhibition is the best opportunity for him to listen to visitors’ opinions and feedback about his creations.

The exhibition presents 51 artworks by Norikian, showing human portraits and the various difficulties people face in life. Norikian’s works focus greatly on women — their characters, emotions, pains, tenderness, love and innocence.

The exhibition will be open till March 15, 2010, Mondays through Saturdays, from 10:00 a.m. till 8:00 p.m.
