Join New York-based portrait painter Hedy Klineman for the opening reception of “Buddhas in the Garden” at Tibet House Museum this Thursday, October 3rd from 6 to 8 pm.


“Buddhas in the Garden” is Kline’s 10-year long homage to the Asian deity, comprising over fifty mixed-media pieces- acrylic paintings and silk screens on canvas and paper. Her pop art expressions harken back to the Brillo boxes of friend and contributor Andy Warhol (who famously donated a pair of his glasses for her 1988 study, Andy Warhol’s Glasses), and draw their verdant undertones from both the manicured greenery of East Hamptons and lush vegetation of Barbados.


Both mysticism and monument, “Buddhas in the Garden” converges the meditative spirituality and vibrant execution Kline has harnessed over her rich, 40-year career.


Admission is FREE. And there will be wine!


This exhibit is open to the public and will run through December 18th, 2013.
