From Amateurs to Connoisseurs
Cobalt Arts show, Antarang, had a glorious and successful launch with its inauguration by <g data-gr-id="17">former</g> captain of Indian Cricket Team, Azharuddin. The exhibition, which features artworks by masters, senior artists as well as contemporary artists, is taking place at Lalit Kala Akademi, New Delhi (Gallery 1 and 2) from October 12-18.
Neeta Pathare, artist, curator and art critic, Cobalt Arts said, “The group show promises to be an interesting one as art connoisseurs will get to view abstract as well as figurative works in tandem. In addition to this, works by Indian ‘Masters’ & Senior artists like Sunil Das, John Fernandes, Suhas Bahulkar, Vipta Kapadia, Ashok Bhowmick, Prakash Ghadge, Asha Mhatre and Datta Bansode will be on display.” She added, “The aim behind Cobalt Arts is to create a platform where Contemporary artists can share the same with Senior artists and ‘Masters’. An individual needs to connect with an artwork to buy it as it is an experience. But now the traditional way of buying art is gradually changing with today’s digital era where people can buy art online as well, but the experience of ‘feeling’ art in person cannot be undermined. ‘Unlike any other product “art” is not consumed.. it is lived with !!!’ “
