Galveston Arts Center presents "Changing Perspectives" and "Collective Pulse" opening reception
Abhidnya Ghuge transforms disposable paper plates into immersive installations using wood-block printed patterns inspired by Indian henna designs, the microscopic and macroscopic world, and the current cultural landscape of America. Ghuge’s exhibition, "Changing Perspective," celebrates these patterns and organic forms, while calling attention the ephemeral nature of human experience.
