The Mayor’s Gallery presents:
“IMPRESSIONS” new work by Stamford artist Julliette Tehrani
STAMFORD, CT - Award winning local artist Julliette Tehrani announced today that her new series ”Impressions“ will be on display at the Mayor’s Gallery. The exhibit runs from November 4 - January 6, 2014, with an opening reception on Thursday, November 7, from 5:30 – 8 pm. The gallery is on the 10th floor at the Government Center, 888 Washington Blvd., Stamford, CT.
Julliette’s paintings give new meaning to light and color. Her creations are free and expressive in style as they blend with realism. Although nature scenes are favored subjects, her dancers and figures evoke an age long gone by. Julliette paints plein air and from her studios in Stamford and on the French Riviera.
Julliette Tehrani returned to the fine arts, her lifetime passion, following a highly successful career as a senior executive in finance. London-born of Persian heritage, Julliette’s artistic themes come from extensive travel and exploration of the great masters, especially the Impressionists.
While a busy executive, her breakthrough came when she first painted in Monet’s gardens at Giverny. With this experience she knew she had to commit more time to painting. She went on to visit other sites where the Impressionists painted. Reaching the Mediterranean and entranced by its physical radiance, mood and atmosphere, she found her muse and a new home.
As many other artists, Julliette began painting as a child, gradually burnishing her talent through study and practice. While primarily self-taught, she learned from workshops and individual lessons with renowned artists in Italy and France. In the United States she has studied art at SUNY Purchase, the New York Art Students League and the Silvermine Arts Center. She holds an MBA and a MS in Psychology.
Her work has been exhibited in individual and group shows in Connecticut and in Europe. She holds memberships in distinguished art associations and her paintings are in the collection of private collectors. She is currently represented by galleries in NYC and Cannes, France.
