)-- Relief 2.0 will be running Art Impact – Nepal – an International photo and photography exhibit. Paintings, photos and handicrafts will be for sale at the show, and the proceeds will go towards building residential art studios in Lumbini and other damaged villages to allow villagers to learn and make handicrafts to earn more money to rebuild their homes.
This exhibit at the exhibition will take place at both the South End branch of the Boston Public Library (May 24) and Boston Green Realty (May 23) in the Mission Hill neighborhood, will feature art work by Ajit Kumar, 2016 Nepal Cultural Art Award winner, and photos after the earthquake by Robin Low, co-founder of Civil Innovation Lab. There will also be handicrafts and products made by survivors living in temporary shelters in Nepal. Mr. Kumar is also affiliated with Gallery G of the Black Indian Inn at 38 Bicknell St, in the Boston neighborhood of Dorchester, MA, where he exhibited in 2016 and where some Nepalese art is also still on exhibit and for sale.
Robin Low, Co-founder of Relief 2.0 will share about the progress of the Nepal Earthquake, 2 years after.
“This is the second year we are doing Art Impact Nepal,” said Mr Low, “There has been many challenges in the progress of the disaster recovery, and for some survivors, handicrafts sold at Art Impact Nepal became their primary source of income. They feel that they were better off than others as they have the dignity to support themselves and save up to rebuild their destroyed homes.”
“Art Impact - Nepal” launched on April 27th in Kathmadu. The exhibition will be making its way to other parts of North and South America, Singapore, Malaysia and various parts of Europe.
The exhibition is free and open to the public.
