Organized in conjunction with the Asian American Arts Alliance's Locating the Sacred Festival

On view from September 10 – 23, in conjunction with the Asian American Arts Alliance's Location the Sacred Festival, NARS will present Interpreting Rituals: The Butterfly Effect. The two-week exhibition considers the quiet reverberations caused by translating the sacred against the backdrop of today's global uncertainty.  Ranging from film screenings to ceramics, photography and print making, each work reflects on spiritual vitality as it vibrates across cultures, time and generations.

On Saturday, September 15 from 1-6 PM, visitors are invited into an introspective yet interactive space where they can experience a Meditation Session, enjoy an Artist Led Children's Clay Workshop and drink from one of the exhibited ceramic vessels on display. Also, please join us for an Artist Talk and Reception.

Participating artists include Veronica Frenning, Lily & Honglei, Gautam Kansara, Ming Yuen-Schat, Yasuyo Tanaka and Eric K. Yue.

The Asian American Arts Alliance's Locating the Sacred is a 25-event 12-day Festival which takes place from September 12 to September 23, 2012 across all five New York boroughs. For more information about the Locating the Sacred Festival, please visit:
