Sapta Svara: An Exhibition of Indian Folk Art by Jugnu Verma
Jugnu Verma received the Jean Laney Harris Folk Heritage award in 2021 for traditional Indian folk arts. This exhibition features the origin of Indian musical notes. In Indian classical music, an octave has seven notes called ‘Sapta Svara’. The notes are Sa, re, ga, ma, pa, dha, ni (similar to western music do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti).
There will be an opening reception on Friday, February 18, 2022 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Sapta Svara is open weekdays from Feb. 2 through April 27 in the Koger Center Upstairs Gallery.
