Sept. 9-Oct. 19: Layer By Layer: Storytelling with Saris
A new, multimedia exhibit will be on view at the Brentwood Arts Exchange through October 19. Layer By Layer: Storytelling with Saris is a collaborative printmaking and story project celebrating women’s literacy in the remote Bangladeshi island of Katakhali. Led by artist and activist Monica Jahan Bose, the exhibit features prints, drawings and a dozen saris, stamped with words recently learned by the women of Katakhali. Projected through the colorful saris, you can see a documentary by filmmaker Nandita Ahmed that shows interviews with the women and footage of them singing and creating their work.

Sept. 9-Jan. 5, 2014: Yes, No, Maybe
You can see Yes, No, Maybe at the National Gallery of Art through January 5. The exhibit features working proofs and prints produced at San Francisco’s Crown Point Press. The work demonstrates the inspiration and imagination behind the artistic processes of artists such as Richard Diebenkorn, Chuck Close, Sol LeWitt and Wayne Thiebaud, to name a few.
