To give you a refreshing break, eminent artists and budding painters from across the country are in the city to add colour to your weekend with the Gurgaon Art Festival, which opened here on Wednesday.
The works of nearly 30 eminent and upcoming artists will be at display at the five-day festival being held at Epicentre in Sector 44.
Paintings of artists such as Prithvi Soni, Narayan Barodia and Sudeep Roy will also be exhibited. Moreover, residents will get a chance to interact with a few.
"This exhibition is an effort to provide a platform to the upcoming artists. Though established names are also a part of it, it is an endeavour to give a chance to budding artists to interact and learn from the experiences of others," said Maandvi S Sharma, curator of the exhibition.
"This is my third exhibition as a curator. I have seen residents of the city running from pillar to post in search of a good art work. So I decided to set a one-stop point where they could see all types of work," she said.
At the exhibition, most of the works are figurative with few abstract. Artists have used various mediums to express themselves which includes oil painting, water colour and charcoal.
"This is my first exhibition in the city. It will be a good experience where I will get a chance to interact with renowned artists. We will also have a chance to know what residents are expecting from us," said Prasoon Chandra Poddar, one of the participants.
