Paintings displayed at ITC Kakatiya SheratonAfter Gujarat's disaster, help is pouring in from all corners of the globe. Apart from international organisations and NGO's, artists are also doing their bit in helping Gujaratis by displaying their works. The International exhibition held recently at the Lakshana Art Gallery and ITC Kakatiya Sheraton hotel simultaneously was one such exhibition that was aimed at helping the craftsmen of Gujarat who were affected by the earthquake.

International ExhibitionThe exhibition showcased the works of eminent artists of India as well as abroad was being organised by Rasna Bhushan with the help of the Dasktar Group. "All sales proceeds will go to the Dasktar Group to use for long term rehabilitation of the crafts people of Kutch and Gujarat whose lives have been devastated by the recent earthquake," said Rasna Bhushan. The exhibition was inaugurated at the ITC Kakatiya on May 7 by Chandana Khan, secretary Department of Culture and Tourism. The works of artists from Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore and also from Toronto, London and New York were on display.

Display to help GujaratisThe works of the women artists from Bangalore, Sheela Gowda, Pushpa Mala and Surekha dealt with feminism. Sheela's painting showing Akka Mahadevi, the famed poet from Karnataka, was a class of its own. Worth seeing was the New York based artist Chitra Ganesh's piece. A collage of sorts, it signifies disjointed and dissected lives. Pushpamala's Phantom Series too was an art lover's delight. A. V. Ilango's painting in shades of ominous grey was also on display. The works of other artists on display were Srinath, Nemiraj Shetty, Srinivas Chari from Hyderabad and Nicola Durvasamula.

Paintings adorned the walls of Lakshana Art GalleryWhile compared to Lakshana Art Gallery, the works displayed at ITC Kakatiya Sheraton were few, yet attractive. The response from the connoisseurs of art was similar at both the places. "The display is wonderful and I feel it is everyone's duty to encourage these kind of exhibitions," said Anand Mohan, an art lover, who witnessed the display at ITC Kakatiya Sheraton. "Apart from the motive behind the exhibition, the works were a blend of all kinds of art from painting to graphic," said Nandita, who visited the Lakshana Art Gallery to see the exhibition.
