Exhibition to display the work of budding artists
To give a wide platform and exposure to its students, National Institute of Fine Arts (NIFA) is organising its 13th annual art exhibition titled 'Antardarshan'. The exhibition will showcase various works in different mediums like charcoal on paper, acrylic on canvas, oil on canvas, watercolour and mix mediums.
During the exhibition, which will be on display from May 21 – 27, at All India Fine Art and Crafty Society, each student is showcasing original, creative artworks in different mediums, says Renu Khera, Director NIFA. She further said, "we organize exhibitions for our students every year to give them exposure and platform in the field of art so that they could showcase their creativity. It gives them immense confidence and encourages them to do more good work."
Antardarshan refers to introspection, self-observation and soul-searching. This annual exhibition, for all the diploma students, is a part of their syllabus. They get a chance to learn how to face the criticism or appreciation by art lovers. The students are motivated to connect to art and culture in the surrounding world so that they get new impulses for inspiration. They are also given a chance to depict their imagination on paper through colours and textures. Introducing them to various art galleries, eminent artists, art critics help them to know more about their works and give them in-depth knowledge on various art-related topics. Also, involvement in exhibition process like how to book an art gallery, making a list of guest, art lovers, catalogue designing and many activities for a good exhibition train them well in the field.

Delhi) which was established by Renu Khera in 2005. The objective of the society is to give art education to all age group people who could not manage to go to colleges.
