Ethiopian Artist Abebe Zelelew at Frisco Fine Art

Frisco Fine Art welcomes acclaimed artist Abebe Zelelew, whose extraordinary mixed media exhibit “O Come Let Us Adore Him: First Fruit” is on display through January 7.

Zelelew’s mission, to capture the emotion and endeavors of the people in his native Ethiopia, is both skillfully and artfully accomplished in his unusual wood carvings, which have a long tradition in African art. While his carving gestures bring him closer to the toiling men and women of his homeland, painting the carved shapes allows him to add light and color to their lives. The result is vivid depictions of Ethiopian culture.

For more information, call the gallery at 214-872-1917. Frisco Fine Art is located at 7227 Main Street, Frisco, Texas 75034.
