I seldom visit exhibitions as I am more into attending workshops where something is taught. Anyway, I did see an exhibition last month which quickly attracted the attention of many people in the city. I was visiting my friend who lives in Bangalore, and I was practically forced to go see the exhibition that was being held in Central Art Gallery. Reluctantly, I went ahead, but I was completely surprised with the grandeur of the art pieces exhibited. All the art that was displayed was created by local artists who used a variety of materials to create breathtakingly beautiful paintings and handmade artwork.
There were oil and acrylic paintings on display which exuded the lifestyle of people living in tribal regions. Works of intricately designed pottery and handlooms were showcased that expressed the sophisticated work of many regional creators. The paintings had minute details that closely resembled the works of many great artists. It was certainly a great sight to witness, what young artists have created.
It was an enthralling experience for me and turned out better than I expected it to be. I also had the opportunity to meet some artists and discuss their work that involves hours of patience and unparalleled talent. The exhibition was aptly lit to bring out the best in a painting and other works on the show. In addition, I bought some pots and a painting as souvenirs from my visit. It was a fantastic arrangement overall and I felt content to have seen it.
