Eye-catching works on display at art exhibition

From oil paintings to copper oxidised and welded idols, it was a feast for the eyes at the two-day art exhibition and sale - ‘Kala for Vidya’ - organised by the Rotary Club of Bangalore for education initiatives. 

The sale that is on in the City on Saturday and Sunday has a set of 70 paintings on display from various artists across South India, said Musten Jiruwala, event co-ordinator, Kala for Vidya. Speaking to Deccan Herald on Saturday, he said, “We have on display the works of over 42 artists.” Jiruwala said that the fund raised through the event would be used for charity purposes of the Rotary Bangalore Education projects.   

Works of artists including Badri Narayan, Gurudas Shenoy, Shan Re, Rekha Rao, G Subramanian, Meena Das Narayan, J M S Mani, M G Doddamani and K K Raghava are on sale at the expo inaugurated by writer Kavitha Lankesh. 

Jhupu Adhikari’s ‘Breakfast’, a painting of acrylic on canvas that was painted in blue and green predominantly, Doddamani’s painting portraying the face of a lady, ‘The Light’, that looked no different from a photograph and eight-year-old Anirudh Kannan’s ‘Abstract of Lord Ganesha,’ that was designed using poster colours on textured paper were among the notable ones. 

On display at the exhibition were also attractive idols and sculptures designed to perfection.

Renowned artist Appukuttan Acharya’s ‘Mother and Child’, a composition of teak wood, was among the works on display. C Dakshina Murthy’s ‘Twins’ sculpted in stone, Dimply Menon’s ‘Joy,’ made of bronze on granite and ‘Ranganathan III,’ a model of oxidised and welded copper, drew visitors’ attention.
