A unique art exhibit opened recently at the Susquehanna Art Museum’s Beverlee and Bill Lehr Gallery.

Titled “Many Visions; Many Versions: Art from Indigenous Communities in India,” the exhibit features drawings and paintings from contemporary artists who represent the four major indigenous artistic traditions known to India.

The work is displayed thematically, rather than being separated into different sections based on their cultural association and showcases the shared artistic styles and traditions.

Alice Anne Schwab, Executive Director, and Lauren Nye, Director of Exhibitions with the Susquehanna Art Museum will appear on Smart Talk to discuss the exhibit.  The owner of the collection, Umesh Gaur, will join the discussion via phone.

Alice Anne Schwab and Lauren Nye appear on Smart Talk on February 14, 2020.
