TGIF Programs Demo Series - Shaheen Rahman - Painting on the surface of water-The Turkish Art of Ebru

Adults - Please join us Friday morning! As part of the TGIF Programs Demo Series, Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library is proud to host local artist, Shaheen J. Rahman, on Friday at 10:30 AM.

Shaheen will be demonstrating the Turkish art of paper-marbling known as Ebru. This fascinating technique involves painting on the surface of water using a stylus, as well as combs and rakes. The painting is then transferred onto paper, creating exquisite patterns which can include stylized flora and fauna. Shaheen’s Ebru art work has been on display at various galleries and venues around Houston, including Cloisters Gallery, Houston City Hall, Harambee Art Gallery, Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Arts, and Harris County Public Library Branches including Freeman, Barbara Bush, and Octavia Fields.
