An exhibition of paintings by noted Sri Lankan artist Nalini Jayasuriya will be on view at the Institute of Sacred Music (ISM) through Oct. 25.
Known around the world for her creations on religious themes, Jayasuriya has been the resident artist at the Overseas Ministries Study Center since 2001, having recently been named the Paul Lauby Artist in Residence there for the 2002-2003 academic year. Her work has been exhibited in Manila, London, Bangkok, Paris, Toronto, Tokyo, Jerusalem and New York. In addition she has lectured at Yale and at Tokyo University.
The artist has described her broad artistic interests and vision by saying, "I write, paint, sculpt, make stained glass windows and make music. I also dream, and sometimes try to understand beyond understanding, through form, color, movement, sound and silence."
The public is invited to meet Jayasuriya at an opening reception on Tuesday, Sept. 10, 4:30-6 p.m. at ISM, 409 Prospect St. The exhibition is presented with additional support from the Overseas Ministries Study Center and the Yale Divinity School.
Exhibition hours are weekdays 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is free. For further information, call (203) 432-5180.
