Otterbein University Hosts Reception for Indian Artist

February 11, 2014

Note: Due to a family health emergency, the reception for Kavita Nayar, scheduled for 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 9, at Otterbein University's Frank Museum of Art has been cancelled. The exhibition of Ms. Nayar's work continues through May 9 during regular museum hours.

Westerville, OH—Otterbein University will host a reception and gallery talk honoring Indian artist, Kavita Nayar, from 6-8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 9, at the Frank Museum of Art, 39 S. Vine St. The reception is part of an exhibition of Nayar’s art called Seeds, which runs through May 9 at the museum. Regular museum hours are 11 a.m.-3 p.m. from Wednesday-Friday during the University’s academic year; closed on holidays and University breaks.

The exhibition presents works on paper that embody the ancient truths of Mother Nature—of life, dependence and freedom—and marks the first time that her most recent work will be presented to the public at the Frank Museum. Christopher Yates, art critic for The Columbus Dispatch, describes the prints and drawings in the exhibition as “expansive and elegant in their simplicity.”

Nayar’s campus visit also includes presentations to students. For more information, call (614) 818-9716.
