The Mills International Center Gallery and the Cultural Forum invites you to experience India in a new way. During Fall term the photography of local photographers Mark Morris and Ankush Vimawala will be displayed in the Mills International Center (located in the EMU above the post office),in the Aperture Gallery and Buzz Café both in the EMU Building, at the University of Oregon. The Ohio-born and India-raised Ankush Vimawala now works as a software engineer in Eugene while enjoying hobbies such as photography and playing the Indian hand drums (Tabla). His photography has been showcased at various places such as the Eugene Mayor’s art show, and art galleries around the country.We invite you to the Exhibit’s opening reception on Friday October 23rd from 6:30-9pm in the Mills International Center (in the EMU above the post office) where Ankush will be playing with his band Bindaas. Come enjoy the cozy “living room” like atmosphere of the Mills Center Gallery. Bindaas’s carefree Indian melodies will be a great backdrop to enjoy the wonderfully crafted documentary shots of India. Mark Morris' and Ankush’s photography translates the eclecticism of Indian culture—the colors and the chaos.Fundraising for an Indian family: Photographer Mark Morris will donate the money of any piece sold for the family he supports in India.The exhibit was curated by the Mills Center Exhibit Curator Kelly Tavares.
