Artist explores ‘divine chaos’ of India

By Mary Catherine Johnson

Diane Solomon Kempler is a seasoned world traveler who has frequently incorporated images and impressions from her journeys into her own art, but it was her recent experience with the chaotic yet mystical reality of daily life in India that inspired her to take her ceramic art in a completely new direction.

Combining film, photographs and writing with clay sculptures, her upcoming exhibition “Divine Chaos: A Journey into India,” which opens with a free reception on March 19 from 5:30–7:30 p.m., will explore the duality of existence that permeates modern-day India, where the sacred and the spiritual amalgamate with the frenzy of everyday activity.

Kempler will give an artist’s talk on April 16 at 7 p.m. The exhibition closes April 24.
