Trained in the traditions of Tibetan thangka painting, Sherpa’s work borrows imagery from classical Buddhist iconography to investigate the dichotomy found where sacred and secular traditions and world cultures collide.
This exhibition is the first of a new annual series focusing on contemporary international art and artists.
An artist’s talk given by Sherpa and an opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 11. Visit HerronGalleries.org for details on parking, exhibitions and more.
