Converse College in Spartanburg, SC, Features Works by Hamadi Ben Sâad and Ray Cooper

Converse College in Spartanburg, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Transatlantic Voyages, featuring the work of Tunisian artist Hamadi Ben Sâad and North Carolina artist Ray Cooper, on view in the Milliken Art Gallery through Mar. 11, 2010. These two artists have exhibited together in North Africa and Europe, and have won numerous awards in the US and abroad.

Hamadi Ben Sâad has been invited to include work in the opening of the new Paul Klee Museum in Bern, Switzerland. His murals, collages and paintings are displayed in municipal buildings throughout Tunisia, and a wall-sized collage recently was displayed in a church in Germany. He is a great humanitarian who has worked with street children on several United Nations sponsored projects.

Originally from the West Coast, Ray Cooper has exhibited widely in the San Francisco area, where he won awards for his abstract landscapes. He currently has work in private collections in the US, Africa and Europe. A resident of North Carolina since 1995, he travels frequently to Tunisia, where he finds inspiration, not only in the country's landscapes and people, but also in his conversations with Hamadi Ben Sâad.
