Kurt Haiman to Exhibit Pastels
Teaneck, NJ (November 8, 2004) — On Sunday, November 21, a new art exhibit, “Visual Impressions,” will open at the Weiner Library on Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus, Teaneck, NJ.
Kurt Haiman, a New Jersey artist and a resident of Closter, will be exhibiting his exuberant pastels — ranging from still life drawings of fruit and flowers to birds bursting with personality. Haiman prefers to work in pastels, a medium he characterizes as “relaxing, stress free and workable.”
There is an Artist’s Reception on November 21 from 2-4 p.m. The exhibit is open during regular library hours and continues through December 19, 2004. It is free and open to the public.
After graduating from the High School of Art and Design and Pratt Institute, Kurt Haiman spent the next 25 years as an Art Director/Vice President Creative Director at Grey Advertising, creating award-winning advertising for some of the nation’s largest clients.
He has taught advertising concept and design at Parsons School of Design and The School of Visual Arts in New York City.
Wanting to conquer other creative worlds, he formed a design subsidiary “G2” eight years ago. Today, it has a staff of 62 and in the tradition of good design, it has become a showcase in the world of contemporary graphics.
Haiman has balanced his time and pursued both his business and his passion for drawing. His delicate pen and ink drawings and his bold use of pastels and watercolors have garnered accolades at The Forbes Magazine Gallery, New Century Artists Gallery, Art Directors Club Gallery and Pomegranate Picture Gallery — all in New York City.
In New Jersey, his work has been exhibited at the JCC, Palisades and Washington Township, and the Belskie Museum of Art & Science in Closter. He is currently exhibiting at the Piermont Flywheel Gallery, Piermont, NY.
Haiman and his wife, Joan, have two sons and five grandchildren.
