For three decades, Santa Fe has been home to Houshang’s Gallery. Today, representing over 53 artists at the Plaza is the first stop for many visitors in town. The gallery celebrates 50 years in the business in August at new location with “one man show” featuring Paul Jeffrey Davids who inspired many people with his work. He is an author of the 18 books, writer for 8 TV show, produced 79 TV episodes, directed 11 movies and painted a total of 300 paintings. With passion for both painting and filmmaking, Paul graduated from Princeton University. Beginning in 1985, Paul was production coordinator for the original "Transformers" animated TV episodes (79 of them) for Marvel and wrote some of the scripts too. George Lucas chose Paul and his wife, Hollace, to co-author 6 "Star Wars" sequel books ("The Glove of Darth Vader" etc.) that sold millions of copies. Paul went on to produce and direct ten films, including the famous New Mexico UFO story for Showtime ("Roswell: The UFO Coverup" with Kyle MacLachlan of "Twin Peaks" and Martin Sheen), plus five TV films distributed worldwide by NBCUniversal. Those include a film about Vincent van Gogh ("Starry Night"), "The Sci-Fi Boys" (with "Lord of the Rings" producer Peter Jackson), "Jesus in India," and two other NBC TV films produced in Santa Fe: "Before We Say Goodbye" and "The Life After Death Project." At Blurb.com you will find 5 color books of his art, all entitled "The Art of Paul Jeffrey Davids" with subtitles such as New York and Paris, Mexico, the California Coast, Forests and Flowers - and an unusual art book called "Blue Jeans and Oil," which has multi-media oil paintings. Artist Statement: I admired the art that I saw in Houshang’s Gallery in Santa Fe. I certainly did not imagine on that brisk fall day that less than a year later, Houshang would decide to hold an art show of nearly forty of my paintings as the Gala Opening of his new gallery. At a time when many galleries are struggling to succeed, Houshang had decided he wanted to have TWO galleries, just one block apart from one another on San Francisco Street – and both a very short walk from the Plaza of Santa Fe. Inspite of all that great flurry of creative undertakings in film and writing books, nothing pleases Paul as much as being able to put all his concentration into painting with oils in his art studio. In the past ten years, much of his art was created in Santa Fe. His house “Casa Vistoso” is considered “An Artist’s Retreat.” Houshang’s Gallery is proud to present one of the geniuses of our time to the audience though one man show during the Indian market. We invite you all to join us for 50 years celebration. Fri, Aug 17 – Fri, Aug 18 between 04:00 PM – 08:00 PM. 110 W. San Francisco St. Santa Fe, NM 87501.
