AFRICAN-ASIATIC WOMAN: A Collection by Sonja Meltonramesar


A Collection by Sonja Meltonramesar

Sonja Meltonramesar is a mixed-media artist living in Prince George’s County but originally from Berkeley, California.  Her work explores her complex, multi-ethnic background which includes African-American, south Asian Indian and indigenous American.

The works in this collection, African-Asiatic Woman, both investigate and honor the historical, visceral, philosophical and spiritual experience of being an African-Asiatic woman.  Through this visual exploration,  the artist ultimately expands the historically narrow definitions of being African-American and reveals wider, lesser-known truths about our vast actuality.

The exhibition is on view from July 1, 2014 until August 30th 2014.
