      EVENT DETAILS
      From Gods to Social Justice – Gallery Talk

      Geraldine Forbes, Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus of SUNY Oswego, and Susan Wadley, Ford Maxwell Professor of South Asia at Syracuse University share a passion for the history, art and culture if India. Together they have amassed an impressive collection of hand painted story scrolls from Bengal and paintings from the Mithila region of the northern state of Bihar.

      Once used exclusively to tell tales of Gods and Goddesses, both the scrolls and paintings have taken on new importance as they document current events and political turmoil. Scrolls were traditionally painted by men and in Mithila, considered women’s work. Both art forms are now painted by both women and men.

      Please join us as these two remarkable women share their insights into the history and stories from the country and people they love at a Gallery Talk at ArtRage.
