The grave incident of loss of Mrs. Raoofi brought a deep sorrow amongst friends and family. Her tragic death was dramatized beyond imagination, since she was the victim of the same fire at Eshtehard Animal Shelter that took the lives of a large number of cats and kittens under her personal care.
We were also informed that a group of arrogant thugs had invaded the animal facility of Varamin under supervision of Mrs. Boroomand attacking her and inflicting serious wounds....
The detail cause of fire and the culprits' criminal intentions are still unknown to us. We extend our condolences to all friends and families and those who share our love for animals. We strongly believe that cruelty against animals must be dealt with the law, since people who commit such crimes are just a step away from the same outburst of injustice and cruelty against humans.

"What a force they beget,
the "hands" that join!...
True treasure lies in our "hands" ,
abundant with Love and Art for coin." ...

Let's get Familiar with Mrs. Soudabeh Majidi:

After taking painting lessons for several years, Soudabeh Majidi began her work in traditional painting through still life compositions, as well as landscapes and portraits.

Following these explorations she enrolled in OCAD where she was exposed to several different disciplines in art such as print making and three dimensional designs.

Soudabeh graduated in painting and drawing in 1997, still considering herself a student in the field of the visual arts. At present she is experimenting with different materials to create texture and variety in her paintings. Such experiments are resulting in an increasingly dynamic approach to portraits, still life and landscapes that she so enjoys creating.
