Meaningful Fiction and the Figurative Tradition: The Art of Mequitta Ahuja
The Stone Center will feature the work of figurative painter Mequitta Ahuja this fall. The exhibit opens on Thursday, September 14 at 7pm with a special reception and artist talk with Ahuja and will be on display through November 22.
Ahuja is motivated by big ideas like painting as a record of our changing notions of beauty or how to make paintings that communicate clearly and invite the creative participation of the viewer. Her unique ethnic heritage; she is the daughter of an African American mother and a South Asian Indian father, informs her work as well. She holds an M.F.A. from the University of Illinois and lives in Baltimore, M.D.
Meaningful Fiction and the Figurative Tradition is on display at the Stone Center’s Robert and Sallie Brown Gallery and Museum from September 14 through November 22, 2017.
