An exhibition by a Kenyan-born artist who discovered her talent for art following a bout of ill health will be on display at Erewash Museum from 10 May until 6 July.
Colour, expression and depth are the key to the Vibrant Reflections exhibition by artist Nila Shah, who says that art and mixed crafts have been a therapeutic journey of healing and self-discovery for her since she began her creative journey in 2009. Her exhibition showcases colourful and intuitive pieces that invite people to unlock their own imaginations.
Nila, born in Kenya, of Indian origin and brought up in the East Midlands is currently based in Derbyshire. She is a mixed media artist who shares colour, expression and depth through her work. A lot of her work in this exhibition is intuitive and involves a number of layers and techniques including art journaling.
Nila continues her passion for working with a wide variety of artworks for therapeutic reasons and is still exploring ways of incorporating different techniques and mediums in her work.
Councillor Mike Wallis, Lead Member for Culture and Leisure, says:
“We are delighted that Nila’s work will be on display in Erewash. Anyone who appreciates art will be certain to enjoy this colourful exhibition.”
