Southborough, MA (PRWEB) February 7, 2006 -–
Nara Luxury Medical Spa of Southborough announced today that it will host the grand opening of the third art exhibit that will be displayed at the Gallery at Nara, an art exhibition hall located in the spa itself. Natick native David Kahn will be showcasing his digital fine art works beginning with the opening ceremony of his exhibit titled “The Visual Koan: Digital Meditation,” which will be held at the spa on February 12 from 3:00-5:00 p.m.
Kahn’s works combine traditional photography with computer technology. He takes regular photographs and creates digital effects that alter lighting and shadow, contrast and color, shape and texture to create a new picture without adding or subtracting portions of the actual images. A koan is a paradoxical statement that is usually used in Zen Buddhism as a meditation aid. Kahn’s digital images present perspectives on life, the nature of the self, the relationship of the self to the earth – and how these interweave. His work has appeared at The Center for Arts in Natick, Natick Artists Open Studios, Wellesley Public Library and Framingham Public Library. He is the third artist to showcase his works at Nara and the first digital fine artist.
“The Gallery at Nara is establishing itself as an active venue in the Central Massachusetts art community. The gallery reflects their medical philosophy, that environment plays a major role in the effectiveness of any treatment,” said David Kahn. “As an emerging Massachusetts artist, it is a pleasure to work with Nara. My belief in the importance of the visual arts for personal well-being makes this a perfect partnership.”
The Gallery at Nara has now been open a little more than a year, and in that time it has rooted itself as one of the Central Massachusetts area’s top art centers. The previous two exhibitors, Nicole Bernstein and Johnetta Tinker, have amassed numerous awards and showcased their works in several countries between them. Each sold works while presenting at Nara. The Gallery at Nara is open year-round, and Kahn’s works will also be available for purchase to Nara patrons.
“When we opened the Gallery at Nara a little over a year ago, we envisioned it being a major contributor to the overall feeling of luxury and beauty at the spa,” said Dr. Joy Thompson, DBA, managing director of Nara Luxury Medical Spa and Advisory Board Member for the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. “The Gallery has not only met that objective, it has also established itself as a leading art destination in Central Massachusetts.”
Nara Luxury MedSpa offers minimally-invasive cosmetic medical procedures such as Botox and Restylane injections, microdermabrasions and Intense Pulsed Light treatments in the comfort of a spa-like environment that includes massages, large lounge chairs, a waterfall, a fireplace and tea and wine. The Gallery simply rounds out the luxurious setting.
The spa is located at 154 Turnpike Rd., Suite #130 in Southborough.
