Indelible India Photo Exhibit
The Indian subcontinent left a lasting impression on this group of Bay Area photographers.
KCI Gallery

Indelible India showcases images of India's cultural treasures, spiritual wonder, natural beauty and remarkable people. Thirty-two images by Bay Area photographers will be on display at the Krause Center for Innovation (KCI) Gallery at Foothill College from Feb. 1 through March 31.

Few countries in the world carve such a deep and lasting impression on a traveller as does India. India is steeped in history and comprised of a diverse mix of geography, tradition, architecture and religion. India overloads the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes and sounds. It is an exceptionally beautiful country filled with massive forts, royal palaces, spellbinding mosques, magnificent landscapes and ancient temples.

Images for this exhibition were made during a two-week trip led by Foothill College photography professor Ron Herman. This trip included visits to Delhi, Jodhpur, Jaipur, and the ancient city of Varanasi. The photographers, including current and former Foothill College photography students, captured images of daily life in Northern India.

Through their lenses, these photographers explored various facets of Indian culture, including a Hindu aarti ceremony held on the banks of the Ganges, a kushti wrestling facility where young men train to compete in the traditional form of Indian mud wrestling, a widow ashram housing women who have been ostracized from society after the death of their husbands, and celebration of the ancient Holi festival signifying the coming of spring and the rebirth of nature.

Exhibiting photographers include Katherine Bazak, Mila Bird, Barbara Buchholz Collins, Michael Collins, Ron Herman, Mary Ellen Kaschub, Annabelle Port, Gabrielle Rondell, Joan Sperans, Don Wheatley, and Kate Winn-Rogers.

The exhibit is located in the KCI Gallery, on the lower level of the Krause Center for Innovation at Foothill College 12345 El Monte Road, Los Altos Hills, CA 94022. Parking is $3. Please park in Lot 4. Disabled parking available in Lot 4-B. KCI hours of operation are Monday - Friday: 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Saturday: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.; Closed on Sundays and holidays.

Astronomy Lecture: When Mars Was Like Earth
Part of the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series
Smithwick Theatre (Room 1001)

On Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018 at 7 pm, Dr. Ashwin Vasavada, of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, will give a free, illustrated, non-technical talk on "When Mars Was Like Earth: Five Years of Exploration with NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover" in the Smithwick Theater at Foothill College, in Los Altos.

The talk is part of the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series at Foothill College, now in its 18th year.

More than five years after its dramatic arrival at Mars, the car-sized Curiosity rover continues to reveal Mars as a once-habitable planet. Early in Mars' history, rivers and lakes persisted for millions of years and created the landforms that Curiosity explores today. The rover is climbing the foothills of a martian mountain, where rock layers have recorded the passage of time and a changing climate. This talk will cover the latest findings from the mission, the challenges of remote robotic exploration, and what lies ahead.

Dr. Ashwin Vasavada is a planetary scientist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. His research interests include the climate history of Mars, the weather on Jupiter and Saturn, and the possibility of ice at the poles of the Moon and Mercury. Currently he is the Project Scientist for NASA's Curiosity rover that began development in 2003 and successfully reached Mars in August, 2012. He now leads the international team of scientists as they explore Gale Crater on the martian surface.

Foothill College is just off the El Monte Road exit from Freeway 280 in Los Altos. For directions and parking information, see: https://foothill.edu/parking/
