The Newar Craftsmen of Kathmandu Valley: Objects of Devotion from Nepal
November 1 – December 15, 2018
James A. Giambrone, an independent scholar and long-time resident of Kathmandu, has studied the repouseé metal work, lost wax castings, paintings, and wood carvings 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. This exhibition, curated by Giambrone, illustrates the step-by-step process that results in the creation of sculptural metal masterpieces.
