Alum at Verge in contemporary exhibition

Work by alumna Chaitra Bangalore (BA 2015) is featured in the exhibition “Home and Away” at the Verge Center for the Arts in Sacramento through Jan. 20.

The exhibition features the work of two California artists – Bangalore and Jennifer Lugris. Bangalore’s portion of the show is titled “Brown Body, Body Hair.” Bangalore is an artist and educator in Sacramento. Her work focuses on South Asian identity, body hair and the different definitions of female beauty. She uses a variety of mediums and methods in her work: oil painting, printmaking, digital illustration, pen and ink, scratchboard, drawing and embroidery.

According to Verge’s description of the exhibition, the name Home and Away is a tongue in cheek reference to rivaling teams in a sporting match. Verge is turning this concept on its head by bringing two California artists together to spotlight some of the state’s best work and continue the greater dialogue of contemporary art in the region.

Bangalore is an artist and educator in Sacramento.

Coming up: History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence

At the Crocker Art Museum, starting Jan. 27 and running through April, is “History, Labor, Life: The Prints of Jacob Lawrence.” The exhibition provides a comprehensive overview of influential American artist Lawrence’s (1917–2000) printmaking oeuvre, featuring more than 90 works produced from 1963 to 2000. The exhibition explores three major themes that occupied the artist’s graphic works: history, labor, and life. Lawrence’s recording and recollection of African American and larger African diasporic histories are featured, as well as his vivid observations of the dynamic city life in his native Harlem, New York City.

Works in the exhibition span from 1963 to 2000 and include complete print portfolios, such as the Toussaint L’Ouverture series, The Legend of John Brown series, and others. This exhibition is organized by the SCAD Museum of Art and is made possible with support from the Jacob and Gwendolyn Lawrence Foundation.
