Jalandhar, December 21
Scraps of wool, bracelets, used ballpoint pens, rags and old sanitary ware were used by artists to create ethnic designer corners in the art exhibition held in Virsa Vihar.
The week-long exhibition, which kicked off Monday evening, was sponsored by the Apeejay Education Society and Dr Stya Paul Art Gallery. It will run until December 27.
Prabhjot Kaur, Income Tax Commissioner, was the guest of honor and Balwinder Kaur, Additional Income Tax Commissioner, was the guest of honor.
The exhibition features paintings, sculptures, digital art, photography and tapestry. In the exhibition, works of art by renowned artists Dr Baldev Gambhir, Dr Jaspal Singh, Dr Ajit Jabbal, Ashwini Verma and Basudeb Biswas were exhibited. They were honored by Dr Sucharita Sharma and Dr Neerja Dhingra. Along with the work of prominent artists, the work of budding artists was also on display.
The molding work of sculptor Basudeb Biswas has remained a major attraction. He exhibited pieces of metal, including peacocks made from old plumbing materials, Kashmiri water jugs and trash. He also set up female figurines made of iron and copper.
Artist Anil Gupta made ‘containment’ themed digital prints from photos taken through a partially locked door, showing all moods, including sadness and hope. There were torans made from used multicolored ballpoint pens. The bracelets hung with wool tied all around the iron frames remained an attraction. One wall in the showroom was devoted to geometric wool patterns framed on pieces of fabric. A tapestry with colorful birds made on a loom by schoolchildren also attracted many people.
Also eye-catching were the mixed compositions of artist Suruchi, who used paper, strips of fabric, and a pen for his designs. Dr Sharma appreciated the efforts of Anil Gupta, Dr Gagan Gambhir, Rajesh Kalsi, Diptesh Naskar and Manoj.
