Opening Reception for The Newar Craftsmen of Kathmandu Valley: Objects of Devotion from Nepal

O'Kane Hall Cantor Art Gallery 2: Please join us for the Opening Reception for the exhibition "The Newar Craftsmen of Kathmandu Valley: Objects of Devotion from Nepal". James A. Giambrone, an independent scholar and long-time resident of Kathmandu, has studied the repouseé metal work, lost wax castings, wood carvings, and paintings created by the Newar craftsmen of that region for many years. As contemporary artisans using traditional techniques that have been in existence for thousands of years, the Newar make objects of both Hindu and Buddhist devotion.
