MILLBURN, NJ - Art work by Millburn resident Garima Dhawan is currently featured in an exhibition at the iconic Art Students League of New York City. The exhibition, at the Phylis Harriman Mason Gallery, runs until Saturday afternoon. Dhawan, a designer, focuses on prints based on nature. Her bold, bright designs are distinctive and her art has been featured in magazines like HGTV, Domino, Redbook and Real Simple.

"The exhibition is important for me because it gave me the opportunity to integrate art and design to create something new," said Dhawan. "These are two completely different worlds and ways of thinking. Printmaking is very detail oriented, and all about working with my hands with different materials and techniques. I need to make decisions at every stage of the process and there is a discipline involved which is challenging and exciting. Once I have something I am happy with, I scan and work on it digitally. This is more free flowing and helps create textiles and products that keeps the feel of the handmade and is also unique and fresh."

The artist is an alumna of the Rhode Island School of Design, RISD, and twice won the Graduate Award of Excellence. She worked in the textile industry for a few years before launching her own business in 2012 to create art for home decor and accessories. Her art is on products ranging from duvet covers to mugs, coasters to pillows and tapestries to blankets. These products sell at stores like Anthropologie, Nordstrom, Bed, Bath and Beyond and Target. Online, her work is sold at Deny Designs, Society 6, Artfully Walls and Eastend Prints.
