Special Guests / Featured Artists Include:
Farida Gul Haroon — born in 1954 in Peshawar, Pakistan. Her work in abstract and figurative painting speaks clearly on her commitment to artistic integrity. Miniature painting is an art form that was patronized by the medieval and often depicted historic occasions and the courtly lifestyles of these rulers. In her own work as a student at Punjab University she learned techniques of preserving authentic original miniatures. And then trained in drawing the jewelry worn by the subjects of these paintings with gold leaf and precious stone powders such as emeralds, pearls and rubies. This required an intricate technique, tremendous patience and a very steady hand. Each painting though only about five by five inches required two to three weeks to complete. The border of these paintings was about three inches wide and was also painted with the same intricate technique using a single haired sable brush. Farida currently resides and works in Coral Springs, FL.
Haile King Rubie’s purity of expression explores ideas of family, African and Caribbean culture as well as dance. Most people who discover his works are surprised to learn that he was born with Downs Syndrome. His commissioned painting, Welcome to Harlem (2011), was selected and etched in steel as part of the permanent installation of 15 works by contemporary Harlem Artists in the Harlem River Park Etched Steel Plaques Project. Haile’s other New York exhibitions include: JVC Jazz Festival; The Museum of Natural History; The National DOWNrightART Exhibition, CasaFrela Gallery; Artwalk Harlem; Soapbox Gallery, Brooklyn, 2011; Hutchins Gallery Exhibition, B. Davis Schwartz Memorial Library of the Long Island University and C.W. Post Campus. His awards include the 2014 FEGS/Haym Salomon People’s Choice Art Contest. He has received commendations from the City Council of NYC, Inner City Broadcasting; Studio Museum of Harlem; Hon. Michael Bloomberg (former Mayor of New York City) and many others.
