Here is one of the scenes. Note the usual Google Maps ‘street view’ arrows. Use them. This is fun. Wish they mapped the ENTIRE set and not just 9 subsections. SMILE.

A fair number of people came. They really liked Saad’s and Hassan’s work. The food was good and very little was left at the end. He even sold one of his big pictures — the one depicting Concord, with the golden State House dome! Always the mark of a successful reception.

The New Durham Public Library Exhibition is from January 14 to February 14, 2014.

I think there are 10 or 11 pictures on display — three by his son Hassan.

There will be a reception, with Saad and Hassan, at the library,
at 5 pm, on Friday, January 24, 2014

Refreshments will be available.

Some of Saad’s smaller works will also be on display that day.

See you there. It will definitely be rewarding.


Some of the Saad pictures on display

These are pictures of him and his girlfriend.

Here is his face, from September. Check how well he captures his own face.

Check the similarity with El Greco (below) with his use of the elongated neck. He had never heard of El Greco.

Nope. Not Hassan yet, but an El Greco with that trademark elongated neck.

This should be a treat for all of you within 67 miles of
New Durham, N.H.


His work is compelling if you like vibrant symbology.

This way many of you will get to savor his work.

It is a win-win for all.

Science Museum At Manchester, NH Was Anticlimactic and Disappointing.

Dec2013x125

It was school vacation for Teischan this week and as we had gone to Boston just last week, we decided to stay local. We heard about the robotic dinosaur exhibit at the adjacent Millyard Museum (when we were at our wonderful optometrist, Dr. Eakin, on Tuesday) and decided to make an afternoon/evening at the Science Center. We had a bunch of things to do in Manchester, including having a leisurely lunch at our favorite ‘Red Arrow‘. We got to the museum around 3:40 pm expecting to stay there till about 6:30 — and then go for dinner. As we were parking Devanee saw a sign that said that it closes at 4 pm. I didn’t believe that. We went in. Both the exhibit and the museum do indeed close each weekday at 4 pm. That is ludicrous. The Boston ‘Museum of Science‘ stays open till 9pm.

4pm, daily, for a museum is so, so provincial. So country bumpkinish. I couldn’t believe it. In Manchester. It is another sad joke.

I was disgusted. And that is it. Not going back there again. Wasn’t very impressed any way. To say it was small is an understatement.

I am a Granite State Ambassador (GSA). I really am interested in enhancing NH’s tourist worth. Stuff like this just doesn’t help.
