Free

Tues., Aug. 30–Thur., Oct. 6, Freedman Gallery @ Albright College

Trained as a biochemist, Rinal Parikh’s skill in scientific analysis combined with her passion for art has led her to win multiple distinguished awards and to be featured as a solo artist and in important group shows across the U.S. and abroad. Working in a range of media, her paintings draw on a fascination with color and composition and portray spontaneity with saturated color. Her subjects are influenced by life in India, and incorporate many different styles of Indian painting that vary from state to state. From floral motifs to landscapes to animals and birds, her exquisite paintings may reference traditional techniques but are paired with color palettes that make them thoroughly modern and unique. For the Freedman’s exhibition, Parikh created a new body of work that explores the joy and happiness of her contemporary family and life in Philadelphia while blending in aspects that honor her Indian heritage.
• Artist’s Virtual Lecture, Sun., Oct. 2, 2 p.m.
