From India to River House
The cross-cultural and incredibly imaginative work of artist Madhurima Ganguly will be on display in a new exhibit at River House Arts beginning Sunday, April 10. Born and raised in Kolkata, India but currently living in Michigan, Ganguly’s work reflects not only the impact of both the Indian and American cultures on her life, but also offers a powerful point of view on issues such as gender identity and social stigmas. The results are evocative and provocative works that are as beautiful as they are challenging. Runs through May 7. Gallery open by appointment. River House Gallery, 425 Jefferson Ave. 419-441-4025. riverhousearts.com
