NACOGDOCHES, Texas – The exhibition “Priya Kambli: Color Falls Down” will close Thursday, Nov. 8, on the Stephen F. Austin State University with an artist’s lecture and a reception.
Kambli will discuss her digital photography at 4:30 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall in the Wright Music Building on the SFA campus. Following the lecture, a closing reception with the artist will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Griffith Gallery where her work has been displayed since the beginning of the fall semester.
Kambli’s photographs interweave early memories of her childhood in India with more recent experiences of her adult life in the United States, including marriage and motherhood. Her images are centered in a sense of longing that is not uncommon for those existing within two cultures and for whom the idea of home stretches over multiple places, according to John Handley, director of SFA art galleries.
The exhibition is sponsored in part by the SFA Friends of the Visual Arts, The Flower Shop and William Arscott.
Griffith Gallery is located in the Griffith Fine Arts Building, 2222 Alumni Drive. Hours are from 12:30 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters. For more information, call (936) 468-1131.
