Featuring art works by Gerard Goh, David Rubin, Henry Swanson
Zhen Music and Art Institute is pleased to present “Cohesion”, will feature works by well-known photographers David Rubin and Gerard Goh as well as paintings by Henry Swanson. The opening reception takes place on December 3rd at 7 pm and is open to the public. The works will be on display through January 31.
Through these exhibitions Zhen promotes local artistic talent, displaying beautiful and engaging works in the galleries that are adjacent to the studios where his students – young and old alike – come every day for music and art instruction. The Zhen Music and Arts Institute is not your typical art gallery. There’s a palpable energy as young students are dropped off after school for their art and music lessons. And on any given day, you can find adults in the sun-filled studio working ceramics or painting on canvas under the careful eye and guidance of music and arts graduates, talented in their own right.
The works of art displayed around the institute encourage and inspire Zhen’s students. As an artist, Zhen appreciates the opportunities that were given to him when he was young, and he feels it’s important to “pay it forward.”
Zhen is excited about exhibiting Henry Swanson’s paintings. “As a young emerging artist, the work is completely aligned with the purpose and vision of the studio. The quality of his work, the inspiration and personal perspective is totally refreshing,” says Zhen. Swanson’s paintings are created from his imagination rather than observation, bringing an abstract quality to realism.
David Rubin and Gerard Goh are well-established artists on an international scale. David Rubin’s photography reflects his training in painting more than traditional photography. Rubin travels extensively, primarily in Europe and Asia concentrating on street scenes. His works are printed on metal, canvas, paper and acrylic. His unique style of re-coloring his works has earned him a loyal following. Rubin’s work hangs in many cities in Texas, as well as Colorado, New York, Paris, Lyon, Beijing and Shanghai. Gerard Goh began shooting film in ’91, drawing influence from years spent traveling the globe. His dramatic photography seeks to evoke emotion.
