On display M-F 8:00 am-6:00 pm in the Newton City Hall first-floor art gallery.

For centuries, western artists have celebrated women by portraying them as beautiful, powerful, and sometimes as nobility. Few parallels exist for South Asian women because we often think of them as playing their assigned roles in society. They have been captured as doting mothers, loyal wives, goddesses in temples, and homemakers performing chores. Seldom does the art world see them as a muse and capture their beauty for who they are, independent of their role in society. This collection attempts to portray South Asian women in their ephemeral moments of solitude, beauty, and thoughts of self-worth, free from societal burdens.
