Local Art @ EPL

Manvee - Tigers

We are happy to announce an exciting new exhibit in our ongoing Local Art @ EPL series.  Throughout December, we’re proudly featuring over three dozen stunning samples of contemporary folk art from India right here on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library.  Curated by Chicagoland artist Manvee Vaid, the exhibit features works from the Madhubani, Gond, Warli, and Bengal Scroll regions of India done in acrylics, ink, vegetable colors, red mud, charcoal, and gouache.  You can learn more by visiting Ms. Vaid’s online gallery Deccan Footprints, and you can hear Ms. Vaid discuss the creative processes behind various pieces on December 14th at 4 pm in our Community Meeting Room.  Also, make sure to check back with Off the Shelf later next week for an interview with the artist herself.  Stay tuned.
