Paintings by more than 50 Indian artistes showcasing the preciousness of life will be displayed from Sunday at a four-day exhibition mounted by road safety NGO Community Against Drunken Driving (CADD).
The exhibition, titled Jashn - Celebrating Life is the brainchild of activist and CADD founder Prince Singhal. It will showcase the works of renowned artists like Anjolie Ela Menon, Paresh Maity, Jayshree Burman and Gopi Gajwani, to name only a few.This apart, Kathak exponent Birju Maharaj, sarod exponent Ayaan Ali Khan and some others have been roped in to especially paint a work for the exhibition.
To be held at the Gallerie Romain Rolland, Alliance Francaise De Delhi in central Delhi, the exhibition is a part of the Artist for CADD programme which supports various CADD activities."This art show is happening at a time when we are celebrating 12 years of the CADD movement and my association with many of the artists goes back to the days when we had just started our campaign," Singhal said.
The paintings at the exhibition will be up for sale starting from Rs. 15,000 to bring them within the reach of budget customers."Another USP of this art show would be a wide display of artworks in the affordable range," Singhal said.
