Nehru Children's Museum organises painting exhibition
Kolkata: Nehru Children's Museum held a painting exhibition at the Gaganendra Exhibition Hall.
The exhibition was inaugurated by eminent painters like Samit Aich, Asit Pal, Debabrata Chakraborty and cartoonist Debasish Deb. It is a three-day exhibition, running from April 28 to April 30.
The production of the paintings was based on 'Tomar shrishti, aamader tulite' or 'your creation through our paintings.'
The 60 paintings that were displayed in the gallery portrayed art work based on Rabindranath Tagore's poetry. Lines like 'Aamar raat pohalo, Sarado praatey, Baashi
tomar diye jabo kahar haatey', were portrayed beautifully through a water colored painting of a brown boy playing the flute in the middle of the night.
Another of these lines: 'Esheche sarat himer pore', came to life through an artwork of a Baul singer carrying an iktara. Many such small lines from famous Tagore poems were portrayed through the art work of 11 to
26 year olda.
Other mediums like poster color, acrylic, charcoal and tempera were used for the paintings.
The theme was nature through Tagore's eyes. Shikha Mukherjee, an official at the administrative section of Nehru Children's Museum, believes that this theme made the children realise the importance of nature and the beauty of Rabindranath Tagore's works.
An exhibition, which has been running successfully since the last 12 years, has made an incredible show this year with 60
|beautiful paintings of some of the best painters in the association.
