Please join us for a project update & woodblock print demonstration with artist,Monica Jahan BoseSaturday, March 16 from 3-5pm in the Brentwood Arts Exchange. Last month Bose traveled to the remote island village of Katakhali, Bangladesh with the Maryland-based non-profit organization,Samhati, where she collaborated with 12 women to create sari prints and collect oral histories in celebration of their literary achievements and community work. The visual culmination of the project, which includes 18-foot-long saris containing prints of the words they have learned, as well as photos documenting Bose’s work and video footage containing interviews with the women, premieres at the Brentwood Arts Exchange as Her Words in September.
