SAC & Inside-OUT Gallery, Artists of the Month: Sneha Shrestha & Peter Murphy
SAC & the Inside-OUT Gallery February Artists of the Month:
East Meets West featuring Sneha Shrestha & Peter Murphy
In February, the Somerville Arts Council and the Inside-OUT gallery will be showcasing the work of Sneha Shrestha & Peter McInerny Murphy--two artists from different parts of the world whose work resides on the same plane. Working in tandem, this East meets West exhibits showcases how the design elements of their pieces compliment each other. We hope enjoy.
About the Artists:
Sneha Shrestha is contemporary artist in Boston. Originally from Nepal, but an experienced traveler, Sneha draws her artistic inspiration from sources as varied as Boston graffiti, Turkish calligraphy, and her native Nepali script. Her works can be described as thoughtful yet irreverent pieces, marrying the beauty of an elegant script with the droll text she often incorporates into her canvases. When not painting these intricate pieces, Sneha works with inner city teens at Artists for Humanity. Sneha also enjoys spray painting outdoors when the weather is cooperative. She often signs her work as 'Kalpana', the Nepalese word for 'imagine', a perfect moniker for an artist who cannot help but see the world in a different light, tinted by her own imagination.
