I'm having an exhibit of photographs I took while in Jaipur, India at the Holi festival last year. Holi falls on Friday March 6th of this year, and I thought how perfect it would be to have my show happen at the same time Holi was being celebrated in India and Nepal!
One of my goals for this exhibit is to try to show the significance of the festival for people on the other side of the world. Just how much the festival is part of who they are, and part of their expression for the coming of Spring, a time of year for re-birth and growth, and the victory of light over darkness. It certainly is something to be excited about!
The show is happening at the Havana Art Gallery at 1212 Commercial Drive in Vancouver, BC. The show is up from March 5th until March 18th 7 days a week. I hope you come by and check it out, you may even learn a thing or two!
