PSA: gallupARTS announces ‘Rangoli: Traditional Folk Art of India’ at ART123 gallery

E-mail Print PDF

For its first ART123 Gallery show of 2018, gallupARTS is trying something new. This month, local artist Padma Komaravolu will cover ART123 in Rangoli. Rangoli, or Muggu or Kolam, is a traditional Indian folk art in which colorful patterns are freehanded from rice flour. Rangoli is kind of like sand painting, except with different designs and meaning, of course!

“Rangoli: Traditional Folk Art of India - The Art of Colors and Patterns” will open on Jan. 13 from 6:30 – 8 pm. As part of the opening, Padma will do a live demonstration of the technique. The show will be on view through Feb. 6.

For more information, follow ART123 Gallery on Facebook.
