Sawaf is a member of the New Hampshire Art Association, the Nashua Area Art Association and the Sharon Art Center in Peterborough.***
Influenced by past cultures, Sawaf paints reflections of women in flowered dresses set against Venetian arcades and marbled, checked floors. Often her canvases show a world filled with music and poetry woven like a tapestry with vibrant reds, golds and blues. Sawaf's richly patterned canvases are reminiscent of Medieval stained glass and Oriental carpets.
Works on view in the Tower Gallery through May 3rd.
