■ Exhibits and presentations


Niki Stewart’s work is influenced by sacred designs created as form of devotion in India. There, dyed rice flour is used to create patterns on streets and sidewalks and in temples. The rangoli can take minutes or hours to create, and are meant to be walked on, with the prayers released as the images are smudged. “I have spent two years trying to translate this sacred process onto my canvas using my medium of oil paint,” she said. Her work is on display this month at Pybus Public Market.
