Norouz, meaning ‘New Day’ in Persian, is the traditional celebration of the Iranian New Year. Celebrated in Iran, this festival, which marks the first day of Spring, has now spread to other parts of the world.


Here in Toronto, Queen Gallery is delighted to host our second annual exhibition marking this festival of jubilation. This year we have four Iranian artists involved in the show, all of whom are all currently living and working in Toronto.

From March 3rd to 19th, Afsaneh Safari, Davood Mantegh,Firoozeh Tangestanian, Sayeh Irankhah will each bring their unique artworks and voices to the gallery. This is a festival that encourages people to visit friends and families. There is a belief that the way in which a person celebrates Norouz, predicts the way that that individual’s year will be affected.

So for this Norouz celebration, come and visit us! See old friends, meet new friends, check out the fantastic artworks and celebrate the coming of Spring at Queen Gallery!
