The brothers and sister Ebrahimifar (Hamid, Masoud, Saeed and Ferdos) are showing painting, sculpture and video at Boswell-Mourot Fine Art starting Saturday; all but Saeed, who is in Iran, will be on hand for the reception that starts at 6 p.m. tomorrow night.

The siblings were raised in a "colorful household," Hamid Ebrahimifar, who has lived in Little Rock since the 1970s and is an arts educator, said. That included an uncle who was a "Sunday painter," another that was a poet and Hamid's father, a "man of all trades" who was also a poet. Filmmaker Saeed, who graduated from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 1980, will show the short documentary "Taghche (Ledge)" at Boswell-Mourot; painter Ferdos, whose last visit to Iran coincided with the disputed elections, says her latest work has been influenced by violence against women; painter and furniture designer Masoud will show paintings of keys that portray "suspended lives of those who hold the key to a free Iran," and multi-media artist Hamid, an art teacher at the Arkansas Arts Center since 1988 and artist-in-residence at Arkansas Children's Hospital, will show new ceramic work.

The Ebrahimifar siblings showed their work together for the first time three years ago at the Seyhoun Gallery in Los Angeles, where Ferdos lives. The show will run through Oct. 30 at the gallery, at 5815 Kavanaugh Blvd.
