Art in the Afternoon: Omer Sanan

October 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Omer Sanan is a retired general surgeon. He dabbled in visual arts during his working years. Mostly sketching his colleges during meetings or when they were dozing on couches in surgical lounge. After his retirement and relocating to Iowa City, seven years ago, Marcia Wegman encouraged him to start attending Phil Dorothy’s drawing studio. That is where he learned how to see. He had been looking intensely inside of people’s bodies as a surgeon but drawing and painting are different. Phil Dorothy, Beppie Weiss, Bob Richardson and others have given him feedback and encouragement. Jo Myers Walker and a group of her students have helped him along with watercolor painting. His artistic endeavors as an amateur artist have became very important to him and he has made great progress. He will talk about his journey in art.

Free Admission | Vaccinations are encouraged and masks are required while in the ArtiFactory. Please maintain a social distance.
