SILVIA KAHN ARTWORK NEXT UP AT ALEXANDER'S

Oct. 30, 2001- Works by St. Thomas artist Silvia Kahn will be featured at the next exhibition at Alexander's Cafe, which opened with a champagne reception on Friday, Nov. 9. The work will hang until Dec. 13.
Although Kahn, a St. Thomas resident for more than a decade, was born in Venezuela, her parents were Austrian. She studied in Caracas, Barbados, Canada and New York City before graduating with high honors in fashion design at the Hetzendorfer Modelschule in Vienna.
"It is my distinct pleasure to exhibit in Alexander's Café, with its Austrian roots and also a cuisine that matches my Euro-Caribbean style of painting," Kahn says.
She will be exhibiting a series of seascape paintings as well as her signature Danzantes — semi-abstract cubist figures in gouache and pencil on paper — and still lifes and tropical flowers. The subjects of the paintings "are easily recognizable, although they are Kahn's personal interpretations of images or emotions, rather than faithful reproductions of reality," publicity material states.
Kahn has won several awards and has had solo shows in Puerto Rico, St. Martin and St. Barths. Locally, she was the featured artist at the first exhibit at the old Jimmy's Studio and also the first Da Da Wine Down exhibitor at Café Amici. Her work has been shown at the Fort Christian Museum and can be seen regularly at her own kiosk in Palm Passage, where passersby can watch her work, as well as in the Camille Pissarro Art Gallery on St. Thomas and the Kareso Art Gallery on St. John.
She and her work were recently featured in the Austrian international travel magazine Reies Aktwell. According to Kahn, ''The publisher was visiting St. Thomas on a cruise, and his visit to my Palm Passage location resulted in this article!"

A special post-reception dinner will follow at Alexander's, with reservations requested. To reserve, call 774-4349.
