Giving Thanks For Small Things Theme Of FAA Artists New Series

Fine Art America artist Aberjhani, whose work is currently on exhibit at the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport, recently launched a new online art series titled “Finding Shelter in a Circle of Gratitude.” Although the series is making its debut just in time for Thanksgiving and the winter holidays, the artist says it is about more than that.

Catastrophic mass casualty events always reminding us of how important little things like showing each other common courtesy, or taking notice of a beautiful sunset or sunrise, can be. The pandemic has been especially convincing.”

The individual titles of the three works in the new series are: 1) “A Bouquet of Humanity”; 2) “Existential Heartbeat”; and 3) “Meanwhile Back on Earth.” They can be found...

Greeting Flannery OConnor At Fine Art America

Just as the work of classic American author Flannery O’Connor has come under renewed scrutiny and criticisms, author-artist Aberjhani has posted on Fine Art America (FAA) several new prints reflecting on O’Connor’s legacy and his own forthcoming book on the acclaimed writer.

On August 24, 2020, he posted the following on FAA, the first image having the same title as the book:
