We'd like to announce that the fifth Home Away From Home (HAFH) exhibition of TAMA Art University NY club will be held September 17-29, 2009 at NY Coo Gallery. The HAFH exhibition, which started in 2003, is a group show planned by artists who are alumnae and alumni of TAMA Art University (Tokyo) who now live in New York. Artists of different thoughts and ages come together in an exhibit that gets its name from the concept of exhibiting art in our second hometown, New York City. However, it also includes works by some members who live in Japan.

Previous HAFH exhibits have been held in such widely varied places as the consular office , DUMBO, Miwa Alex beauty salon so far. For our fifth exhibit, a wide range of generations of artists who graduated from Tama University gather here, with different styles: oil, printing, sculpture, representational, and abstract art. The participating artists display their unique expressions and sensibilities in an exhibition full of character.

All of us sincerely appreciate your attendance.


********** NY Coo Gallery News Letter - September **********

The opening reception for the "The 5th HAFH Exhibition 2009"
was held on the evening of Friday September 18.

The artists in this exhibition all graduated from the same university, Tama
Art University, Tokyo. Beyond the differences of their generations and
medium used, an enigmatic unity can be found. Their work may be linked by
something beyond their personalities or subjectivities. It can be therefore
understood that art is sought over individual intuition and sensibility.

Please visit our gallery and experience it yourself.
The exhibition runs through September 29th.
