We are extremely delighted to welcome Tunisian artist, Alia Bensliman, into the StudioYU community! She is a social art practitioner, instructor, doodler, supermom, and jewelry designer who integrates recycled material into her deeply-rooted North African masterpieces. In 2016, Alia was also the 1st Prize recipient at the Art of Darkness Exhibit, hosted by Artworks, Trenton's Visual Arts Center. The announcement and her profile is available on the Artworks website, and you can follow her artistic journey through Instagram @doodles-diary or our Artists page.
Alia kicked off her first show with us during our Culture, Art and Wine Exhibition at Hopewell Valley Vineyard last month, and The Resting Goddess (shown above) was just accepted to the 2017 Ellarslie Open 34. She will be showcasing her jewelry at the opening reception of our Summer Sanctuary Exhibition at Princeton Abbey on Sunday, June 4. Please save the date and see you there!
