Born in New York City Paul Zenian began his career in science as a physicist before pursuing art and receiving his MFA from the University of Michigan. Mr. Zenian’s scientific background allowed him to experience art from the inside out and to appreciate and balance both method and freeform expression. He has exhibited around the state and around the country dating back to the 1960’s. His work is included in various local, regional and national collections.
Dearborn’s art community and the DCAC are proud to have this esteemed artist residing in Dearborn and thrilled to be able to celebrate the fine art of Paul Zenian, an artist whose contemplative work takes inspiration from both the natural world and the spiritual. Mr. Zenian has generously offered to present this exhibition as a benefit to help support the DCAC and the Padzieski Art Gallery.
