JONESBORO – Visitors to the Arts Clayton gallery will get a glimpse of India through the eyes of artist Sivananda Nyayapathi.
The exhibition, East and West: An Artist’s View by Sivananda Nyayapathi, features both still lifes and oil portraits and sketches that reflect the artist’s American and Indian heritage.
“I love the color and texture he uses in his pieces,” said Courtney Hurst, director of artistic services. “His portraits are very realistic. It feels like the person is in the room and you can go talk to them.
The exhibition will be on display until August 30 in the Allan Vigil Georgia Gallery.
Brian Childress’s photograph is hanging in the gallery’s Open Studio until July 25. Childress is the winner of the 2018 Jury Photography Competition, which won him a solo exhibition.
“His pieces have an interesting subject and we can see his passion for photography,” said Hurst.
On July 20, the gallery will host Indian Family Culture Day for children ages 3 to 13 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Registration is required for the free event. To register, dial 770-473-5772.
Next month, August 1-28 in the Open Studio, will feature the solo exhibition Quilted Collages by Sandy Teepen. The opening reception will take place on August 2 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
