Hoboken resident opens art exhibit
A one-woman exhibit of original silk paintings by Nena Tahil
Hoboken resident Nena Tahil – who moved to the Mile Square from NYC seven years ago – is proud to announce the opening of her new art exhibit in the city!
“Artist Nena Tahil is having a one-woman show featuring her original silk paintings at the Philippine Center in Midtown Manhattan. Open to the public, the collection will be will on display from September 7 through 17, 2010. A reception will be held on Wednesday, September 8, at 6:00pm.
Ms. Tahil draws inspiration from the divergent styles of her favorite artists—Mondrian and Chagall.
“Silk as a medium is strong, yet delicate,” says Ms. Tahil. “Painting on silk is a balance between control and fluidity. The uniqueness of the medium gives each art piece a quiet luxury.”
“The intrinsic nature of silk and the various techniques I use reinforce my life perspective: when striving for perfection, delight in the mystery of possibilities and surprises and contemplate the unique beauty of imperfections.”
Ms. Tahil’s works have been shown throughout New York and New Jersey in such venues as the Ceres Art Gallery in Manhattan, as well as the Rotating Galleries in Hoboken. She was awarded First Place in a judged competition sponsored by the National Arts Program. Two of her paintings are currently on loan at the New York State Executive Mansion in Albany, chosen by First Lady Michelle Paige Patterson.
SILKSATION will be on display at the Philippine Center from September 7 through September 17. The selection of abstracts, landscapes, geometric, and figurative works shown are designed to stimulate ones visual sensation of silk.
