Her Words: Storytelling with Saris: Artist’s Talk & Printmaking Demonstration
Please join us for a project update & woodblock print demonstration with artist, Monica Jahan Bose, Saturday, March 16 from 3-5pm in the Brentwood Arts Exchange gallery. Last month Bose, traveled to the remote island of Katakhali, Bangladesh where she collaborated with 12 women to create sari prints, collect oral histories, and celebrate their achievements in learning to read and their work in improving their communities. The visual culmination of the project, which includes the 18-foot-long saris as well as photo and video footage documenting Bose’s work with the women, premieres at the Brentwood Arts Exchange as Her Words in September.
