San Francisco's LIVE WORMS GALLERY is proud to announce its latest exhibition, "VISUAL METAPHOR," featuring the paintings and visual art pieces of San Francisco's own award-winning poet and artist Mahnaz Badihian.
The exhibit presents the images of a poet and painter whose art vividly portrays the different layers of her life: the poet and artist; the childhood in the Middle East and a lifetime lived in the United States; the sensitive soul of the creative spirit and the harrowing pain of exile and devastating world events.
"My brush and pen explain and explore life as it happens," says Badihian.

Dec. 7th 6:00 - 9:00 pm Artist Reception
