CAH exhibition featuring bronze and copper wall murals opens Friday

The LCSC Center for Arts & History (CAH) presents Shohini Ghosh: Narrative Zeitgeist, an exhibition of bronze and copper wall murals with patinas and gold leaf. The exhibition will open to the public on Friday, May 31, from 6 - 8 p.m. Shohini Ghosh will lead docent tours starting at 6 p.m. in the Main Gallery. The exhibition runs May 31 - July 20.
Ghosh, a Denver-based artist whose works are a stylistic representation of genre subjects, has been sculpting since 1991. A former lecturer at the University of Mumbai, India, inspiration for her works, Ghosh says "come from the therapeutic bonding felt by women when they get together to talk about life. It was something I grew up with, an ingrained part of any culture." In 2011, she installed two bronze public art pieces in Changchun, China. She notes "History proves that art acts as an effective impetus for individual spiritual growth, civic development, and community pride. My time in China was very rewarding, and the permanency of the installations I did there fosters all three, I hope."
Her work has a long list of exhibition history that includes these venues: Littleton Historical Museum in Littleton, Colorado; Sandstone Gallery in Laguna Beach, California; Lowry Art Center in Fort Collins, Colorado; Hand Artes Gallery in Truchas, New Mexico; and the International Sculpture Park in China. Ghosh has many of her large scale sculptures in public art venues in many small cities in the Midwestern U.S., China, and India. Ghosh has made presentations and delivered speeches at various symposiums and conferences, including the International Ceramic Symposium and the China Changchun Sculpture Symposium, the World Sculpture Conference in China, and the Miami River Art Fair in Miami.

Litteneker, Attorney at Law, and through grants from US Bancorp, the Idaho Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
