ArtXchange Gallery presents Indigo, a traveling exhibition previously exhibited in major cities throughout India and now crossing to the US, January 6 through February 26, 2011. The exhibition presents complementary bodies of artwork by Indian artist Shelly Jyoti and US artist Laura Kina in a range of media including hand-embroidery on khadi fabric, Sanskrit calligraphy and mixed-media on canvas. The narrative threads running throughout the artists’ work evoke India’s colonial history, stories of immigration, and the tensions and transformations of cultures evolving in a globalized world.
Thurs, Jan 6, 2010 - First Thursday Artwalk, 5-8pm. The opening reception for Indigo: Laura Kina and Shelly Jyoti! This textile and fiber based exhibit explores how two artist's history, identity and culture intersect through the tradition of indigo dye.
