The exhibit of 50 artworks examines “the process of transcendence from motherhood to Mother Goddess,” according to curator Neeta Omprakash Naique.
Images are drawn from the cultures of Tibet, India, Africa and the United States. All the artists are first- and second-generation Americans from India, Cuba, Africa and Puerto Rico. (This is a self-portrait by Suzanne Jackson.)
The reception will feature professor storyteller Raouf Mama; Tibetan chanter Tenzin Wangchuk; and performance artist Karen Dolminitsh.
The exhibit will be up until Thursday, April 25. The gallery is on the lower level of Shafer Hall.
