From her native India, to New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and now Washington, artist Shruti Ghatak traveled over 8,000 miles in a voyage that began with a degree in science and emerged over the years to a focused study of art and detailed observation.

Ghatak has exhibited widely in the USA and India.

Her solo exhibition at Shoreline City Hall Art Gallery (3rd floor; 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline) opens Friday November 9, 6:30-8:30 p.m., and will be on display through Jan. 21, 2019.

The artist will give a short talk during the opening.

Regular gallery hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.

“Displacements” records the dynamics of global movement and diaspora. Images of boxes, books, and clothes dominate, along with communication devices like smartphones, tablets and laptops.

Featured is a 14-foot-wide Displacement, a quadriptych in charcoal.

Ghatak received her MFA from New York Studio School, NYC and her master’s in organic chemistry (specialized in color technology) from Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai.
