October seems to be a happening month for artists. Mann Ke Teen Rang was the artists showcase event wherein 21 artists from different states and genre, participated. Since a group event always holds the promise of veiwing varied artworks, we got to see a good blend of paintings by seasoned and budding artists. The group exhibition is on from 13th – 22nd October 2010, at the State Gallery of Fine Arts, Hyderabad.
The best part of the gallery building is that there are many halls where exhibitions go on simultaneously, and we get to see more artwork than expected. Its these surprises that make your day more interesting.
Most of the paintings belonged to budding artists. Amongst the many, I liked the finesse of A.Hari Kumar’s works in his use of Charcoal. Laxman and Mahebub’s landscapes had a bit of eerie-ness that I liked.
Here are two simple yet striking paintings by Ratna De, an artist who specialises in water color media. Some of her best works range from geologic rocks, hands, Jesus Christ, to architectural sketches.
There is a lot to see in the gallery, apart from the on-going exhibitions. If you really want to see more works, the friendly staff at the gallery take you around to more halls, where a lot of artwork is kept as collections.
Browse art. It is a great way to spend an afternoon.
