Gifted Iranian painter, Maryam Khazai, was one of the 12 winners of design painting from Cleveland International Biennale Drawing Exhibition.

I also attended Children's Book Illustration Exhibition on the effect of flower and nature on the works of painters, and exhibition of the manifestation of feelings, held on the occasion of Women's Week."
