NOVEMBER 11TH, 2016 AT 06:00 PM | FREE | TEL: 202-234-5601 | [EVENT WEBSITE](http://www.hemphillfinearts.com/exhibitions/current-exhibitions)

This is an opening reception for the exhibition “Everything became nearness and the nearness turned to stone.” Like Rainer Maria Rilke’s words, painter Hedieh Javanchir Ilchi’s brushstrokes are surgically applied, exquisite in execution and commanding in form. Her Iranian roots inform these patterns, called tazhib, or the art of illumination, used to adorn the margins of historical books. They reference a culture long-oppressed by internal and external forces and also nurturing of deeply beautiful traditions.

In the year 1220, during the height of the bloody Christian-Muslim conflict known as the Crusades, Saint Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler Al Malik al Kamil. The docudrama “The Sultan and the Saint” tells the story of this remarkable encounter. The commitment to peace of the two men behind it sucked the venom out of the Crusades and changed the relationship between Muslims and Christians.
