A photography exhibit featuring the work of a Pratt professor, Cheryl Stockton, will be on display free and open to the public at the Pratt institute in Clinton Hill through October 29th.
The images are primarily photographs printed onto fabric, some in the size and shape of the traditional Tibetan prayer flag (no coincidence), and some much larger, up to four and a half feet wide. The images are the product of a 2007 Pratt study abroad program which Stockton lead called “Art of the Himalayas.”
Stockton was inspired and influenced further by her studies of Tibetan language and script and decided to combine the photography with script upon fabric, like the prayer flags. The pieces will also be on sale, with a percentage of the proceeds benefiting humanitarian efforts in Tibet.
