TEHRAN – Works by a number of Iran-based Afghan calligraphers and paintings are on view in an exhibition at the National Library and Archives of Iran in Tehran.

The exhibition titled “Lapis Lazuli Pens” is being organized under the auspices of the Iranian National Commission for UNESCO.

Speaking to IRAN during his visit to the exhibit, Iranian National Commission for UNESCO director Hojjatollah Ayyubi said, “We should prepare the ground for migrants to learn art and to showcase their artworks at galleries.”

“This showcase has provided an opportunity for the Afghan artists to create their own artworks, which have been blended with Iranian art,” he added.

The exhibition opened on Friday and will run until December 26.
