We’d like to announce that “Home Away From Home” (HAFH), The Alumni Association of Tama Art University NY Club Exhibition, will be held June 15 – 30, 2012 at the TENRI Gallery (43A W. 13th Street, New York, NY 11101)
TAMA Art University Alumni Association’s NY Club, established in 2003, currently has a membership of nearly 80 – mostly Tristate area residents, plus some residents of Japan – of whom 24 member artists will participate in this exhibition.
HAFH is an acronym of Home Away From Home. There are two meanings, two points to this title. The first is to be conscious of our identity. The other is to present creations that break through our own barriers by making our efforts in New York, the center of the world’s art market.
The first HAFH Exhibition was in 2004; this is the eighth HAFH exhibition. HAFH has earned a top reputation as a fully fascinating exhibition where participating artists display their unique expressions and sensibilities. It has been held in many attractive locations, including galleries in Chelsea and as part of an art fair; this reflects the fast-paced changes of the New York art scene. Our most recent exhibition was held at the Hammond Museum in North Salem, New York. It was our first museum-scale exhibition and was received favorably, showing the artistic growth of those whose work was exhibited.
For our 2012 exhibition, we have gathered a wide range of artists representing many generations and different styles: oil painting, printing, sculpture, representational art, and abstract art.
