In the Gallery

Bhavna Mehta
My Father’s Letter
October 9 – December 7 2018
Reception: October 9, 5:30 – 6:30 pm

Bhavna Mehta works with paper – cutting and embroidering it to tell stories that combine figurative imagery with botanical motifs, text and shadows. Using paper as skin and thread to connect and mend, using cutting and sewing to talk about exposing and hiding, she makes work about relating and remembering. Mehta has exhibited widely in San Diego and Southern California. She is the recipient of the Artists Activating Communities grant from the California Arts Council (2017) and the Creative Catalyst grant from The San Diego Foundation (2015). She has won multiple awards in juried shows and she was one of the San Diego Art Prize emerging artist winners. She collaborates with artists making public art, using paper as a design medium.
