Ceramic and installation artist Sharbani Das Gupta will lead a workshop on the Turkish marbling technique known as Ebru at the Museum of Art on Saturday, May 20 at 2pm. Usually completed on paper, Das Gupta has adapted the art form for ceramics.
Born in Mumbai, India, Das Gupta currently lives and works in Las Cruces. She studied at the National Institute of Design in Gujurat, India, and considers her herself a socio-political artist and activist. Her work in The New Romantic reflects her interest in the socio-environmental world and advocacy for a sustainable future.
