Central College Mills Gallery presents "The Miseducation of Bharat Ajari"
Central College will welcome the works of Bharat Ajari to the Mills Gallery from Feb. 15 to March 12 as part of the college's Black History Month programming. His exhibit is titled "The Miseducation of Bharat Ajari."
A visual artist and photographer, Ajari's work focuses on creating paintings of contemporary African American and Black life, both in content and palette choice. His work is an exploration of color as a reference to people of African descent and as a vivid, bold approach to applying paint to canvas.
Ajari's style is grounded in post-modernism and inter-subjective perspectives. The primary investigation of his work is what it means to be Black. He has exhibited his artwork in solo and group art shows in several galleries in St. Louis and St. Charles.
An artist's talk is yet to be determined. The Mills Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
