The summer event is known as the oldest visual arts event in Iran’s private sector that features works by 228 artists this year.
According to Leili Golestan, the director and designer of the gallery, 32 works worth over 10,000 USD were sold in the opening day.
A special feature of this edition is that well-known artists have not participated and only a number of works by young and less-known artists have been presented.
Prices start at 13 dollars and the most expensive painting is 6,000 dollars which is a work by Mohammad Ebrahim Jafari.
At this event any work that is sold is removed from the wall and replaced by another work of art. Therefore, the exhibition is updated every few days and enthusiasts and shoppers can visit and shop again.
“One Hundred Works, One Hundred Artists” will run through August 21 at Golestan Gallery, north of Tehran.
