WAH Center debuts Exhibit by International Artist Poren Huang
NEW YORK, Oct. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The WAH Center (Williamsburg Art & Historical Center) is hosting an opening reception for the exhibit of personified dog sculptures--"The Dog's Notes" by artist, Poren Huang on November 7, 2015, 4pm-6pm.
The internationally renowned Taiwanese artist will exhibit his collection for the first time in New York after being on a world tour for almost ten years.
In 2005, Poren Huang launched "The Dog's Notes" sculpture series. He uses the dog as a creative starting point and each piece of work is suggestive of the human. About 90% of the works borrow from the dog to explore various human behaviors. Most people generally feel kindness toward dogs because of their ability to soothe. Therefore, Huang's goal is to use the dog as a creative theme to convey positive traits such as self-confidence, courage, loyalty or innocence, and to provoke emotions and deeper thoughts.
"It is an honor to bring the works of this acclaimed and talented artist to New York," Yuko Nii, Founder & Artistic Director of the WAH Center states. "Poren Huang's contemporary collection magnifies the strength of New York's art community by giving voice to other contemporary sculptors working in our community today," she adds.
The exhibition will be on display from November 7 through December 6, 2015.
