Beautiful glass ware at Crafts Bazaar Crafts Bazaar - 2001, an annual affair of the State concluded recently at Necklace Road provided a perfect venue for many artisans from across the nation to display their ware. People of the twin cities also got an opportunity to buy the art works of super craftsmanship. The ten day Crafts Bazaar-2001 that was held at Necklace Road attracted huge crowds.

A wide range of crafts on displayOrganised by A.P. Handicrafts Development Corporation and sponsored by the Union Ministry of Textiles and Development Commissioner (Handicrafts), the crafts bazaar had provided a lot to the craftlovers. About 150 artisans form a dozen States put nearly 135 stalls and offered people a wide range of crafts. "The venue is really spacious. People of the twin cities thronged the venue on all days not only to buy the crafts but also to experience the beautiful surroundings of the lake," said Avneet Bhai from Gujarat who displayed wood carvings in the exhibition. "The crafts available here are affordable and it is like a buyer's paradise," said S. Anuradha, a Gym instructor who visited the exhibition.

Eye-catching craftIntricately-woven jute and bamboo products from West Bengal, lovely Madhubani paintings from Bihar, wood carvings and textiles from Gujarat, leather products and aesthetic jewellery from Kashmir and artistic textiles from distant Assam were some of the handicrafts displayed in the crafts bazaar. The stall that displayed the exquisite Tanjore art works got great response from the public. There were many art works made aesthetically by a well known art director, Kesavan. Among his other works, the 8-foot tall framed work of Lord Venkateswara priced at Rs. 1 lakh and 5-foot tall Lord Krishna caught every one's eye. "There is a lot of demand for Tanjore paintings nowadays. The gold coated paintings will add new attraction to the rooms. Although, I have received many awards from the Government for my works, but I'll get the real pleasure only when art lovers praise my work and buy it with much happiness," said Kesavan.

Ganeshas in a row Products from our State displayed in the exhibition included terracotta, Kalamkari works, lace items from Narsapur, lamps made of brass sheets and sarees from Siddhipet, Narayanpet, exclusive dress material from Chirala and Mangalagiri. All were there for discerning eye to chance upon, regardless of the dent it would make on the purse.
