Enter a world of tranquility, full of colorful fields, reflective rivers and swaying trees as Park West Gallery presents the artwork of international artist David Najar in his first solo exhibition at the gallery.
Experience “Art and Serenity” from April 3-29 at Park West Gallery, located in Southfield, Michigan, where 45 new and archival works by Najar will be on display and available to collect for the first time.
Take advantage of the rare opportunity to meet Najar in person during an opening reception held April 2 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
Najar, a native of Israel, can be described as a contemporary expressionist. Visitors can view and collect these engrossing works, including originals and giclées, during the course of the exhibition. David Gorman, Park West Gallery Director, says viewing artwork by Najar allows observers to escape the chaos of their everyday lives and enter a state of serenity in his landscapes.
“These windows into alternate realities promote a sense of calmness and tranquility, elevating the viewer into a dreamlike state,” Gorman says.
Najar says he finds inspiration in nature, emphasizing the beauty of the natural world through oil and acrylic paintings created in a spontaneous and instinctual method.
“Sometimes, to breathe, we think we need such an expensive vacation to somewhere, but we can do it every day,” Najar says. “There is a lot of beauty around us.”
Najar has studied with artists such as Moshe Rosenthalis and Park West Gallery artist Itzchak Tarkay. His works have been collected worldwide and exhibited in Israel, the United States and Canada.
“There is a simplicity that exists in Najar’s compositions – the type that can only arrive after decades of perfecting his craft,” Gorman says. “Park West Gallery is pleased to offer a solo exhibition for this internationally acclaimed painter.”
Admission to the exhibition and gallery is complimentary. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. For more information or to RSVP for the opening, call 248-354-2343 or email RSVP@parkwestgallery.com.
