November Program: Boisali Biswas – Mixed Media Fiber Artist  Day Presentation: My Journey as a Fiber Artist

Evening Presentation: Materials and Techniques


Boisali Biswas is a studio artist working in mixed-media fibers, born and brought up in India. Her formative undergraduate years were spent at Visva-Bharati University, founded by Rabindranath Tagore at Shantiniketan. The essence of that profound experience has stayed with her throughout her educational journey and continues to influence her work. She completed her MFA at Bowling Green State University. Living in this country for over 30 years and adapting to Western styles and inspirations in concert with her background, has made her art into a cauldron of multicultural assemblages that are unique and a feast for the eyes.
