Announcing with great pleasure, "Ajanta and other Images of India", the art exhibition of Manick Sorcar will be held on September 22-23, 2018 (Saturday and Sunday) at his art gallery at 14565 West 58th Place, Arvada, CO 80004. Open 12 noon to 5 pm each day, it will be a part of the annual 'Arvada Art Studio Tour', open to public.
This year's specialty is the art series based on Ajanta theme. Ajanta caves are rock-cut Buddhist cave monuments the date of which start from the 2nd century BCE to about 650 CE in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra State, India. The cave arts consist of paintings and rock-cut sculptures of the finest surviving examples of ancient indian art, expressing emotion through gesture, pose and form. The site is a protected monument in the care of the Archaeological Survey of India and since 1893, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
