Imparting creativity 2, an art show of 150 affordable artworks by aspiring artists of Impart was inaugurated by Tollywood Actress Rituparna Sengupta and model-actress Richa Sharma. The exhibition started at ICCR, Kolkata on the 24th of April. The curator of this exhibition was Samir Desai.
The exhibition featured sixty aspiring artists. The sketches, the brush strokes have been done in such a detailed manner that you may be puzzled to know that this has been done by amateur artists. The people who have put up their works have been practicing painting just for a few years. But that will hardly be understood by a viewer from the detailed way that they have drawn the pictures.
Rituparna Sengupta was highly surprised and amazed on seeing such beautiful pictures. The actress was even more awestruck when she learned that this has been done by amateurs. “I also have a latent interest in painting. You never know maybe next time I will also be participating in the exhibition” said the actress with a smile.
This four day exhibition has been supported by Faces. Imran Zaki of Faces said “We are supporting the exhibition. A part of the proceeds would go to the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Cancer Research Institute. The exhibition therefore has a noble cause”.
Namita Lakhotia, Anukta Ghosh, Raka Mittra, Richa Dalmia, Harshit Jain, Prithwish Kumar Sarkar are some of the participants of the exhibition. Harshit Jain, a class seven student of La Martiniere for Boys started painting at the age of five. The student also added that he would have pursued this art even if he had to do something else. For Namita Lakhotia, Richa Dalmia and Raka Mittra, taking up painting has helped them to express themselves better and they also have made new friends at the IMPART classes.
Anukta Ghosh, wife of director Anindya Ghosh is also a participant at the exhibition. She left her job two years ago to pursue her dream of becoming a painter. Rituparna Sengupta praised Anukta for the bold strokes in watercolor.
Richa Sharma looked pretty in a white sari and was full of praises for the paintings. The model-actress even liked a few paintings and she planned to buy them too for her house.
The exhibition will continue till the 27th of April at ICCR.
