Realms of Earth and Sky: Indian Painting from the Fifteen to the Nineteenth Century (Jan. 31 to May 17) features a wide range of South Asian paintings drawn from the University of Virginia’s Fralin Museum of Art and private collections. Visitors will encounter scenes ranging from the opulence of the Mughal court to the actions of gods in the forms of men, and from lively battles to depictions of intimate courtly love. The styles can be intricately refined or sweepingly bold, all contained in the small scale of the manuscript or album page. The exhibition will be the focus of the 2015 Alfred Z. Solomon Residency, and will include many public events.

Elevator Music 28: Morton Subotnick: Silver Apples of the Moon (Feb. 7 to March 31) will let visitors hear the groundbreaking recording from 1967, which was the first full-scale electronic music album commissioned by then-emerging classical record label Nonesuch Records. The recording is the 28th installment of the Tang's ongoing series that uses the elevator as an exhibition space. Composed using a modular voltage-controlled synthesizer built by electronic instrument designer Don Buchla in collaboration with Subotnick, Silver Apples of the Moon captures sounds from a newly invented instrument at the outset of the information age.

On Wednesday, Feb. 18, 10-11:30 a.m., Saratoga Reads will team up with the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College to offer a workshop for budding artists age six and up with an accompanying adult. The program will begin with a discussion of one the Saratoga Reads junior books, Jingle Dancer by Cynthia Leitich Smith (illustrated by Cornelius Van Wright and Ying-Hwa Hu). The book tells a story about a young member of the Muscogee Nation who borrows jingles from the dresses of several friends and relatives so that she can perform at the powwow. The book includes notes about the jingle dance tradition and its regalia. Participants are urged to read the book in advance. Following the discussion, the young artists will work on an art project related to the story. The group is then invited to have lunch in Skidmore’s Murray-Aikins Dining Hall. The cost of the meal is $9.63 for adults and $7.49 for children (ages 6-12). The workshop is free and open to the public, but space is limited. To make reservations, call the Tang Museum at 518-580-8080. To RSVP for lunch in the dining hall, call Saratoga Reads at 518 580-8008.
