Washington Printmakers Invitational: We the Immigrants September 28 – October 29 1641 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Washington DC 20007 Kanika Sircar’s Rg Veda wall tiles playfully juxtapose hymns of the invaders of Northern India with maps of Mars, the cosmic imaginings of bards two millennia (or more) ago, as they sat around a fire, drank their version of mead, and looked upward.
“Being Sentient/Sentient Being” September 9 – 30 Juror Aneta Georgievska-Shine Allegany Arts Council, Wills Creek Exhibition 9 Center St. Cumberland MD 21502
Thoughts about linguistic and scientific relativism guide the imagery in most of my work. Schiaparelli’s drawings of Mars and the Vedic hymns in the two Ratri Sukta books present a playful, amalgamated cosmos that the ancient invaders of India may have imagined two millennia ago as they looked at the night skies of the Gangetic plain.
