An Afghan art show at the Pleasanton Public Library today and again this Wednesday will highlight the talent of artist Abdul Shokoor Khusrawy, newly arrived from Afghanistan.
"His art reflects the rich history of a proud people who survive even in these challenging times," said Penny Johnson, programs librarian.
Shokoor, known for his technique of using a pallet knife on oils to change the textures of his painting, said: "My knife style is new, and while I use it in a new way, it is still a copy of impressionism art."
The free exhibit will be on public display from 1-5 p.m. today and from 1-9 p.m. Wednesday.
The library is located at 400 Old Bernal Ave. in Pleasanton.
