Moments of Radiance: Art by Amita Bhakta - March 19-April 30, Tennessee Valley Museum of Art.

Gallery Talk with Amita Bhakta
Thursday, April 14, 6 pm at the TVMA

Learn about the inspiration and techniques behind Moments of Radiance in this discussion with artist Amita Bhakta.

About the Exhibit
Chitrasutra, a 5th or 6th-century Sanskrit text about art, says “Art is not for worldly pleasure; it is to take one on the path of spiritual experience, to Divinity.” This tenet will be on full display in Moments of Radiance, an upcoming exhibition by India-born artist Amita Bhakta, who says that her time creating art in her studio is “a profound experience for me.” Each painting in this exhibition serves as a visual interpretation of inspirational lines from ancient Sanskrit texts and literature.

Admission to the museum is $5 for adults, $3 for students, and free for TVAA members.

 

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.
