Suffolk University, Boston 2010

In April 2010, I was invited to Suffolk University by Afshan Bokhari, Assistant Professor of Art History at the New England School of Art and Design, to deliver a two-day Rangoli workshop/demonstration and present a lecture about my practice.

The Rangoli was constructed to celebrate the opening of the new, state-of-the-art NESAD building at 20 Somerset Street.

Over the two day period, up to ten students helped to complete the design, which was 7ft x 7ft in size and comprised of 13 different colors of dyed rice and various grains. Time taken: approx. 12hrs.

The event was sponsored by The Rosenberg Institute for East Asian Studies, the CAS Dean’s Office, and NESAD.

  1. Gowri, went through all the rangoli pictures from this time and the earlier years! Brilliant! Congratulations for this. Hope Rhea will get to meet with you and to get inspired. She loves art and craft!

  2. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website. It’s
    a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me
    to come
    here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to
    create your theme?
    Outstanding work!
