Cara Gulati – Wrapped in Color

500 Palm Drive
Novato, CA 94949

June 18 – August 14, 2022
Opening Reception June 18, 2 – 4 pm

Gulati states: Color is the most important element in my work. Bright saturated colors that make the heart pound faster, the pupils dilate and the hands desire to reach out to touch. The look and feel of fabric provide a tactile sense of the familiar, while thread work adds depth and texture.

Wrapped In Color is an exhibition of stunning art quilts by artist member Cara Gulati. This immersive exhibition of sumptuous fabric and thread paintings envelops viewers via Gulati’s dynamic compositions and use of vibrant colors. Swirling flowers, shapes, and ribbons meander through space, providing an engaging three-dimensional visual experience that will delight visitors of all ages.
