A physician and a classically trained artist, Schweitzer recreates and interprets what goes undetected by the naked eye. Using people as her muse, she takes the subtle and seemingly commonplace gestures of the human body, and with the cunning use of light and color, transforms every slight bend of the finger, curve of the back or tilt of the head into a beautifully choreographed ballet.

Tara Gallery is located at 1202 Montana Avenue, Suite B, Santa Monica. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. and Sundays and Mondays by appointment. Visit www.taragallery.org.

All pieces are available for purchase and proceeds will benefit American Foundation for Contemporary Iranian Art (AFCIA), an independent, non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting and supporting contemporary Iranian art in the United States.

The exhibition will run through July 30 and also features the works of Mehri Dadgar, and Neda Dastgheib.
