Now through September 27, 2022 | Miller Nichols Library, First Floor Gallery
“Passion to Compassion” is an exhibition of 20 abstract expressionist paintings by Noshaba Bakht, UMKC Education student. We are delighted to have these works installed in the First Floor Gallery in the main UMKC Library, as the inaugural exhibit in our new Student Art Exhibits Program. Bakht’s colorful and texturally dimensional paintings include many layers of different media, primarily oil paint. The exhibit includes paintings that communicate the impression of trees and cityscapes from Bakht’s native city of Lahore in Pakistan. Bakht says of her style,
Noshaba Bakht is a PhD student in the department of Education at UMKC. Originally from Pakistan, she was born and raised in the heart of Punjab in the ancient city of Lahore. Bakht describes herself as an artist by accident. “I realized that it was my call, but it was hidden in me due to my responsibilities and interests in academics elsewhere rather than art. Art is a great motivator and an outlet for me.”Visit the Artist’s Website
