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.
