This exhibition includes paintings by artist Jyotsna Raj, some created before she came to live in the United States, all reflecting the beauty and traditions of India, including folk art and ancient miniatures. Raj began painting as a young child, has no formal education as a visual artist, but, inspired by the arts and crafts of the untrained women who create art to celebrate the festivals of the Hindu year, she works spontaneously, out of a feeling of devotion, focusing on essential aspects of Indian life, such as the lives of the gods, the exquisiteness of the lotus, the splendor of the peacock (India’s national bird), or the majesty of the elephant.
