To celebrate 75 years of Indian independence, the Chandigarh Lalit Kala Academy (CLKA) organized an art exhibition and workshop. The showcase features 75 works by 75 artists as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.
The exhibition is held at the underpass connecting Sector 17 to Rose Garden in Chandigarh.
The exhibition (on view until August 30, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.) features the works of outside artists, including Hussain Masood from Srinagar, Nabibakhsh Mansoori from Ahmedabad, Abdul Gaffar from Nagpur, Anil Bodwal from Delhi, Anuradha Thakur from Pune, Archana Vishwakarma from Kolkata and Adarsh Palandi from Madhya Pradesh.
Tricity artists include Viney Vadhera, Sandeep Joshi, Neenu Vij, Harmanpreet Singh and Pallavi Garg.
Two special artists, both graduates of the Government College of Art, participated in the art workshop. For a multidisciplinary approach, seven students from the Government College of Art and the Chandigarh College of Architecture presented an art installation.
“We celebrate freedom in all its varied hues and the exhibition presents different ideas, thoughts, sensibilities and creativity from the 75 artists. Each work tells a story and CLKA is honored to organize this event,” said Bheem Malhotra, President of CLKA.
