In her statement, Nutritionist Miriam E Krantz recounts her arrival to Kathmandu,
back when the planes were small and the hills, decorated with the rice paddies.
Now that Krantz is retired, she focused on realizing her dreams of taking up the
sarangi and painting. For the latter, she joined Kathmandu University's Center for
Art. Nepal Appreciation is the novice artist's first exhibition, which showcases
her gratitude and love for Nepal. The exhibition features still-life, portraits and
landscape paintings, and a solitary abstract piece that the artist interprets as
what sunshine looks like. The event was inaugurated by Kiran Manandhar, with an
entourage of artists from Nepal Academy of Fine Arts.
