Art Exhibition by Bhavna Misra - “Colored: Nature, Architecture, and Portraiture” (King Library)
Start Date: 11/1/2017 All Day
End Date: 11/30/2017

Event Description:
Colored is a collection of oil paintings in the genre of portraiture of people of color. Also on display are local landscapes and some inspired architectures. A SJSU alum, Bhavna Misra, is a Bay Area resident and a full-time painter.

Bhavna Misra has been painting since she was a little girl.

In her mind science and art were never separate – “Science is the art of accuracy, and the technique of art is certainly a science of creativity,” and she was equally good at both. Bhavna says she applies the knowledge of light and its effect to all her pieces. Bhavna believes that not studying art formally gave her a chance to develop her own style, and to live in the spirit of a lifelong student. She learns every day by practicing and experimenting. Bhavna has a special interest in doing portraits. She feels that a portrait bonds the artist and the subject in a way such as to give a sense of ownership to both. She regularly displays her work in group and solo shows. She works as a contractor for the Alameda County Library System and she owns and operates Bhavna Misra Art Studio. Bhavna is professionally affiliated with Fremont Art Association. She lives in Fremont and online at
