Announcements

Norma Tahhan - Gallery NTK

Norma Tahhan is an Australian Artist who has an extensive knowledge of drawing and painting, acquired in various Universities and Colleges. She has undertaken many travels within Australia and abroad for artistic research and this is reflected in her many art works. After numerous exhibitions, including Solo Exhibitions at The Seymour Theatre Centre, The Star , The New England Regional Art Museum and Customs House and The Powerhouse Museum, it is clear that Tahhan’s artistic practice is dedicated, professional and consistent. Her work has been represented in numerous Private and Corporate Collections throughout Australia, USA, Lebanon and New Zealand. Tahhan’s work has also been featured in many newspapers and publications including the Sydney Morning Herald, The Daily Telegraph, Black & White and on television. Norma Tahhan’s personal experience and her love for life materialise in the powerful and dynamic images she creates. Her paintings and drawings are rich and reflect the intensity of her personal experience. Her works are spontaneous and direct. Her initial idea soon unravels to reveal a work embedded in reality. “Reality becomes abstract and abstract becomes reality.” Norma Tahhan totally immerses herself in the creative process, each work becoming an extension of her being. “ My artworks are created through my blood stream – the pulse of my life. I call for the viewer to become a part of this experience.”
Norma has also integrated her professional artistic practice with Art Education and Art Therapy. After completing A Master in Visual Arts UNSW, Norma completed a Master's In Art Education UNSW. She has been the Creative and Performing Arts Educator in two Colleges within Australia and established Gallery NTK in 1996 in Croydon NSW. Gallery NTK is a leading Art Gallery and Art School within Sydney and in 2017 Norma Established Gallery NTK's Art Cafe, where patrons can create their own artwork while enjoying the Gallery's Exhibition of Artwork. Norma is Gallery NTK's leading Art Educator where the Art School has more than 100 students attending the weekly classes. Classes are for all ages and abilities from Kids - Adults. Norma also Facilitates Gallery NTK's School Holiday Art Classes, Kids Art Birthday Parties and numerous exhibitions and events within the Gallery.
