Shaheen Rahman's Ebru on Display in the Internet Cafe

We're honored to host "The Art of Ebru" by Shaheen Rahman in the Internet Cafe this summer. From now through the end of August, patrons may enjoy viewing the traditional Turkish art of paper-marbling known as "Ebru." Shaheen Rahman is an art-lover and artist who has enjoyed painting with watercolors for the last 10 years. Recently, she immersed herself in practicing Ebru. This fascinating technique involves painting on the surface of water using styli, combs and rakes. The painting is then transferred onto paper, revealing exquisite patterns which can include stylized flora and fauna. She likes to incorporate Arabesque motifs and calligraphy into Ebru for a wide variety of expression through this medium.
