“The Women,” featuring the photography of Sylvia Neupane, opens at The Creativity Caravan, 28 S. Fullerton Ave., with a reception on Friday, Jan. 12, 6-8 p.m. The exhibition will run through Wednesday, Jan. 31

Neupane, co-owner of Lemongrass Montclair, a Tibetan store at 22 S. Fullerton Ave., displays images of 12 women, offering “a window into life after the 2015 earthquake in Nepal” that “tell stories of hope, gratitude, trust, surrender and the capacity of these women to stay present in the face of struggle,” according to a release.

Sylvia Neupane was born in Poland, the release said. Her first memory from childhood is holding the world atlas in her hands at age 4 and looking at the white region of the Himalayas and the Tibetan plateau. She made her first journey there at the age of 19.
