INDIA: Beauty in the Everyday
September 10, 2015 – October 1, 2015
Lawrence Gallery at Rosemont College is pleased to announce a new exhibit “INDIA: Beauty in the everyday” on display Thursday, September 10 to Thursday, October 1, 2015. An opening reception will take place Thursday, September 10, from 4-7:00 p.m., and Diane Pieri will speak at 4:30 p.m. The event is free and open to all.
For over 25 years Diane Pieri was deeply immersed in the almost unearthly beauty of Indian miniatures. Pieri was solely inspired through books until she was awarded a 2012 Independence Foundation Grant to travel to Northern India, the geographic source of her desire to create beauty in the everyday world. The images in Pieri’s paintings are translations of and reactions to intensely colorful experiences from her trip to India.
