Text: Darshan Invitational Art Show - featuring Indian American artists from across the country - March 19-April 30, Tennessee Valley Musuem of Art. Artists Meet & Greet on Saturday, March 19, staring at 2 pm as part of the Darshan Opening Festival
Explore the breadth of perspectives within the Indian diaspora through the eyes and talent of Indian American artists. Painters, ceramicists, photographers, and textile artists from across the United States answered our call to submit artwork that represents their experiences as Indian Americans. The result is a beautiful and thought-provoking exhibition featuring 20 artists.

Several of these artists will participate in a meet & greet on Saturday, March 19, starting at 2 pm, as part of our Opening Festival for Darshan: Visions of India.
Included in this art show is a collection by featured artist Geeta Dave, an India-born artist and muralist who now lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Her work “explores the relationship of force and identity using symbols of the life circle on earth.” Her own work, along with the work of some of her students, will be on display.

Darshan: Visions of India is a six-week series of events and exhibitions hosted by the Tennessee Valley Art Association, celebrating the arts and cultures of India.

Admission to the museum is $5 for adults, $3 for students, and free for TVAA members. Admission will be free on March 19 for the opening festival.

This project has been made possible by grants from the Alabama State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
