Ishaan Raga
January 12 - February 25, 2017
A doctor by profession, Deepali Mahanta Kayal started painting at a young age after she won a national level painting competition. She has honed her skills over a period of time at several places: New Delhi, Jaipur, Chennai, and Guwahati in India. She has explored a variety of forms and experimented with different techniques and styles. Her engagement with various morbid conditions of her patients has not dampened her spirits, but rather inspired her to search for hidden beauty, pathos, and meaning in our day-to-day lives. Indian folklore, mythology, and philosophy have been recurring themes in her work. She firmly believes that art is the quest for self-expression and truth. Dr. Kayal currently lives in Madhya Pradesh, India.

Experience Terracotta Warriors of the First Emperor, a one-of-a-kind exhibition premiering at Pacific Science Center in Seattle for a limited five-month run in spring of 2017 and featuring artifacts from the first imperial dynasty of China. The expansive collective of terracotta statues—including soldiers, civil officials, and entertainers—at the burial complex of China’s First Emperor is awesome in its scope. Pull them apart, however, and each individual statue tells its own piece of the story of the culture, craft, and science of one of history’s most monumental endeavors.
