Work of painters from across India

Art fair

An exhibition of paintings by 86 artists, young and old, at All India Fine Arts and Crafts Society (AIFACS) is adding colour to this dry and searing season. The exhibits are works that were created by artists at ‘Senior and Junior Artists Camp 2015’,

These camps are considered as art mela and serve to remove the demarcation between ‘senior and junior artists’ and foster better understanding and respect for each other’s creations. Two halls were given to the artists and they were given the same materials for painting. Artists could choose their own space for work and were expected to produce a painting in three days. All the participants were provided a canvas of 30x30 inches with a set of 12 acrylic colours, one palette, sketch book etc. 

Ram V Sutar, president of AIFACS said, “It was a common scene in the halls to see small groups sitting together and discussing the modern art scene in India and showing albums of their own work.”

The exhibition which concludes today, has canvases of the same size, but the colours take one to 86 different kinds of journey. Whereas, one can see a motivational painting for the youth exhorting them to vote, there are paintings
of women, children, abstract paintings and realistic landscapes.

This year the society decided to invite artists from the National Capital Region (NCR) also and was rewarded with wholehearted participation from artists from Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Noida and Gurgaon. All the participants were selected on the basis of their bio-data and their work.

Chairman of AIFACS, Paramjeet Singh said, “The artists’ camp has become an integral part of the art activity all over the globe. For art organisations, it is a cultural exchange, whereas for commercial galleries it is a business. But for AIFACS, it is purely an art promotional activity. This exhibition is held to project the work of these artists in front of the people and a part of it will be taken to our Panchkula centre to promote these paintings and artists.”
