The Tyler Museum of Art is proud to present the first large-scale museum exhibition of an emerging East Texas talent with "Apertures of the Mind: Works by Abhidnya Ghuge" from Sept. 7-Dec. 2 at the TMA, 1300 S. Mahon Ave. on the Tyler Junior College main campus.
Born in India, Ghuge is a multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Tyler. She is currently an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Texas at Tyler. Inspired by a blend of Indian henna designs and imagery from her previous medical profession, Ghuge’s work explores themes of community, time and value. "Apertures of the Mind" features hand-carved woodblocks, ink and gouache drawings, and mixed media wall pieces. The exhibition also will include a site-responsive installation constructed out of woodblock-printed paper plates. Ghuge’s work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions throughout the United States. Her work can be found in public and private collections in India, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Support for "Apertures of the Mind" is provided by Collectors' Circle-Gold Sponsor Sheryl Rogers Palmer. The exhibition is open for viewing during regular TMA hours of 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday. For information, call (903) 595-1001 or visit www.tylermuseum.org. Admission is free.
