Art Shows at Chitra Kala Parishath

Experiencing art at the apex art venue in town

The artist was very welcoming, as was her friend Bharati Suraj, who curated her works, to come up with a stunning show that highlighted Pavitha’s love for nature and birds in particular. Bharati also brought out the evolution of Pavitha’s talent from 2006, when she started painting to her recent work.

I was also able to look at the work of three artists in the first hall at CKP, and took this informal snap of them ready to welcome visitors:
