Artist Opening Reception: Boisali Biswas

Sunday, March 10 — 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Works on display March 4 - April 6

Ferndale Library’s Art & Exhibitions Committee is thrilled to announce the next solo show featuring works by the brilliant and talented artist Boisali Biswas. A studio artist who works in mixed-media fibers, Biswas’ art is best described as “a cauldron of multicultural assemblages that are unique and a feast for the eyes.” Join us on Sunday, March 10, for our opening reception.

Boisali Biswas was born and raised in India, but has lived in the U.S. for more than three decades. Her formative years were spent attaining her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Visva-Bharati University, founded by Rabindranath Tagore at Shantiniketan. The essence of that profound experience throughout her educational journey has stayed with her and continues to influence her work. Biswas completed her Master of Fine Arts at Bowling Green State University.

Biswas describes her art as "an odyssey...through the passage of time-honored techniques, traditions, and influences" that contemplates how cultures and countries are "bound together by the warp and weft of civilization, how we are wrapped in cloth ever since our inception!" Biswas' “journey of working with fibers continues to weave those cultures together in a multifaceted way."
