When: Nov. 19-Dec. 31 2019

Indian miniature painting has changed a bit since it was inscribed on palm leaves in the eighth century. Then again, the art form is still miniature, colorful and symbolic. As a child, Sonja Olson fell in love with it. That passion inspired her to augment her printmaking major in college with South Asian studies, to learn to speak Hindi, and to travel to India to study with a master painter in Varanasi. Olson spent several decades as a professional printmaker but has now returned to her early interest and is making Hindu-style painting her own.
