On going art exhibition at Gaiety
Tagore on canvas- peep into literature in form of painting
People of the city got an opportunity to experience the magic of Guru Rabindranath Tagore’s work in the form of a 5 days long ongoing exhibition that is from March 18 to 22 organized by the Academy of Language, Art and Culture, Himachal Pradesh at the historic Gaiety Theatre, Shimla.
While informing about the exhibition Ashok Hans, secretary, academy said, “To mark the celebration of 150 years of birth anniversary of Guru Rabindranath Tagore we organized various camps and these showcased paintings and Chamba rumal are the result of those camps only. During the camps we had various categories like phari miniature painting, Chamba rumal and modern art.”
“Other than that we also organized the children competition and have exhibited the chosen work from the same category”, he informed further.
During the exhibition spectators got an opportunity to witness the scenes from various literary work of Guru including poems like Lotus, Paper Boat; stories like Samaaj ka shikaar; Bekhaarin, Raja- Rani; Tote ke siksha and Kabuliwaala; Novel like Wreck.
While commenting on the exhibition Chief Sectary, Himachal Pradesh and the Chief Guest for the occasion said, “The effort on the part of people to pay tribute to Tagore, in the form of painting scenes on canvas or in form of embroidery by the artists is highly commendable.”
For all the art lovers it’s a treat to watch but however for the ones who are regular visitor to the exhibitions held here, might turn out to be bit disappointing, as the showcased work has been repeated and was exhibited in the year gone by, by the academy in an exhibition held at the same venue.
