Gita Kar

Artist and educator GITA KAR received subsidy to spend five weeks in India to broaden the conceptual and creative scope of her work in traditional impermanent art through advanced study and work with master artists in the Mithila tradition and Sanskrit literary scholars. In addition to studying the art form, she wishes to develop further the relationship of mythology and philosophy to her own art work, which is an expression of her cultural identity.
