Come join Senaka Senanayake, one of Sri Lanka's most prominent artists, for a tour of his current exhibition of paintings, In an Iridescent Land. Senanayake studied art at Yale University, and has exhibited his work all over the world for over five decades. In his recent body of work, Senanayake depicts plants and animals of the rainforest, painted with a brilliant palette of colors and complex compositions that reference Western Modernism.
