A schedule of events for "Urbanlights" is below.
Opening reception: Saturday, May 3, 2-5 p.m.

"When you look at the lights of a city, especially at night, you can also look at the sky, see the full moon and the stars; always, they interact with the city lights surrounding you," said Joshi. "There are trees, houses and skyscrapers, the moon, stars, street lamps, building lights."
"In my 'Urbanlights Series' I have tried to compose a cityscape geometric framework which is superimposed on the skyscape, to give the viewer a different vision of the combined composed and cosmic worlds. These paintings encompass changing seasons; day or night; and angles of view, through which I can explore the natural and man-made sparkle that surrounds us, to
watch it all interact."
Joshi began working with textured two-dimensional surfaces on his canvases, and later his metal sculptures, as a way of exploring light, color and form.
His paintings, monoprints and metal and stone sculpture have been widely exhibited. A rich mixture of ideas, technique and philosophies infuse his work in all media, which have been widely exhibited through the United States over the last 35 years.
Art appreciators who are interested in viewing additional Joshi paintings from previous decades, can visit Zuppa Restaurant, 59 Main St., Yonkers, around the corner from Blue Door Gallery.
