Trained in the traditions of Tibetan thangka painting, Tsherin Sherpa’s work borrows imagery from classical Buddhist iconography to investigate the dichotomy found where sacred and secular traditions and world cultures collide.

"Metamorphosis: Recent Painting & Sculpture by Tsherin Sherpa" is the first of a new annual series focusing on contemporary international art and artists. The exhibition is on view in the Herron Galleries from March 11 to April 25.

An artist’s talk given by Sherpa and an opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 11.

The Galleries at Herron, located at 735 W. New York St. on the IUPUI campus, are free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesdays.
