January 30, 11:00AM-4:30PM; (Thursdays, open until 8pm)

The Syracuse University Art Galleries is pleased to present Mithila Painting: The Evolution of an Art Form, an exhibition of 40 acrylic paintings and color screenprints by 28 different artists, created from the early 1970s to 2010. This exhibition, presented in conjunction with the spring 2014 Ray Smith Symposium, Transformations in South Asian Folks Arts, Aesthetics, and Commodities, will draw the viewer into a vibrant Indian aesthetic tradition, and traces its evolution from ritual imagery to contemporary social commentary. Co- curated by David Szanton, President of the Ethnic Arts Foundation and Patter Hellstrom of Patter Hellstrom Visual Art, this display continues the yearlong celebration of international art and artists at the Syracuse University Art Galleries and is partially funded by the South Asia Center at Syracuse University. Also featured in the Galleries as a complement to the Mithila exhibition are two displays: Modern Visions, Sacred Tales: Selections from the H. Daniel Smith Poster Archive and Featured Artwork: Selections from The Ruth Reeves Collection of Indian Folk Art.

The exhibition will run January 30 March 16, 2014, in the Shaffer Art Building at Syracuse University. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Sunday, 11 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.; and Thursdays 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. The SUArt Galleries will host a free opening night reception from 5:00 7:00pm on Thursday, Feb. 6. Patrons are welcome to view the exhibition until the gallery closes at 8:00 pm. The reception is open to the public.
