Awardee Highlight

Selvarani Sangaran, a 2019 Grant Recipient, was awarded $2,500 for a project entitled, “Organic Handicraft”. This project will showcase and promote the ancient culture and environment friendly handmade traditional items & skills, which are slowing vanishing mainly from India (Tamil Nadu, Punjab & Rajasthan States). The theme will be explored through a series of eight different oil paintings, resulting in an exhibition at Saratoga Arts Center in Aug’19 for a month. This project is a tribute from Mrs. Sangaran to skilled craftsmen and the items which identify the traditions of the city and the community.
