Artist Neera Dahiya Featured at Silent Auction Held During HealthCorps' Green Garden Gala
Date:5/19/2009

NEW YORK, May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Capturing vividly the core message of HealthCorps' fight against childhood obesity, artist Neera Dahiya's painting "Not Just DNA" was successfully auctioned at The Green Garden Gala, hosted by Dr. Mehmet Oz, HealthCorps' Founder and Chairman, and his wife Lisa Oz, at the World Financial Center on Thursday, April 30.

Auction winner, Ms. Amberleigh Thetford, who made the impressive four-figure winning bid, commented, "Dahiya's painting, 'Not Just DNA' is much like the title of the piece, beyond life and full of meaning, which is what made this piece attractive to me. Life is more than your DNA; it's about taking whatever is thrown at you, much like a canvas, and holding onto it, giving each person texture, and creating a life full of art and beauty. I very much look forward to seeing and investing in more of her work in the future."

Neera Dahiya, an abstract expressionist artist, focuses on the complexity, dynamism, and multiple layers of human emotion and existence, expressing these themes in her paintings through physical tactile media and visual texture, encompassing several dimensions. Conceived as a part of the "Individuals and External Influences" series (2009), "Not Just DNA" is a composite representation of what defines an individual -- their DNA, or internal constitution, but more overpoweringly so, the strength and richness of their life experiences, influences and choices. While very diverse, the two constitutional elements are integrated in the painting, emphasizing the overall magnificence of human individuality.

In addition to raising funds for HealthCorps' mission, the Gala honored Musical Genius Quincy Jones, Actor and Performer Ben Vereen, New York City Schools Chancellor Joel Klein and New York Philanthropist and CEO of the Red Apple Group John Catsimatidis for their contributions to the health and well being of American youth.

The celebrity-studded event attracted such guests as Russell Simmons, LL Cool J, Donna Karan, New York Governor David Paterson, Celebrity Chef Rocco DiSpirito, Miss Universe Dayana Mendoza, Dr. Michael Roizen of RealAge, Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Mark Hyman, former Knicks star John Starks and Warner Music Group Executive VP Kevin Liles.

Sports celebrities who took in a dazzling performance from Wyclef Jean included Knicks Legend Earl "the Pearl" Monroe; Bo Kimble, former Knicks player; Kenny Anderson, former New Jersey Nets player; Olympic Gold Medal Softball Pitcher Jennie Finch; and Jay Fiedler, retired Miami Dolphins and New York Jets Quarterback.

Self-taught and Award-winning artist Neera Dahiya was born and raised in Boblingen, Germany, and currently resides in New York City. For more information about Neera Dahiya, and to view her art online, visit http://www.neeradahiya.com.
