India, a country with an amazingly diverse and rich culture, is often called a country of festivals, with every day being a reason to celebrate among the multi-ethnic populace. As part of a series that explores our connections to the environment, the earth, and the community, ArtEast invites artists of Asian Indian descent to submit artwork that depicts celebration, while highlighting any of the multitude of art forms and techniques that have originated from the vastly varied and unique culture of the Indian subcontinent. The intent of this exhibit and related events is to help increase awareness and appreciation of the diverse richness of our communities.

  • Work must be original, complete, and not previously juried at an artEAST exhibition.
  • Artists should submit a 100 word or less artist statement related to the work being submitted.
