Enjoy ‘Colors of India’

The Friends of the Alameda Free Library presents Kumar Fanse’s Colors of India. Fanse’s work captures the beauty of the land and its people. The exhibition provides a sample of what is there to see and experience in India. Fanse has lived in Alameda since 1971. He works with watercolor, oil on canvas and gauche on dry leaves and tree bark.

Fanse’s colorful images seize the ephemeral and convey the sublime through ordinary people. His work offers a tremendous variety of India’s people and colors — a visual time capsule of the world’s most diverse nation. "I hope my work will motivate people to visit and explore India," Fanse said.

The library will display Fanse’s work from Saturday, Aug. 29, to Saturday, Sept. 26, on the second floor of the Main Library, 1550 Oak St.
