Punjab, developing love for art

Various art galleries and art institutes have recently started promoting and showcasing the art works of students from different walks of life. KT Kala Kendra is one such art gallery in Amritsar, which promotes the art works of students and encourages them to develop their skills.

Recently the students of Lovely Professional University exhibited their sculptures, paintings and photographs at the exhibition. They very well displayed their technical and creative skills and the audience was mesmerized by their creations.

KT Kala Kendra provides an opportunity to the students to showcase their work of arts at their space, their motive is to promote art amongst the audience in Punjab, says the Director, Brajesh Jolly. 3D sculptures, which were prepared in fiberglass, wood and along with carvings in stone were the main attractions of the exhibition and appreciated by all the visitors.

Indian Academy of Fine Arts is also doing its own bit to promote art amongst the students of Punjab. They organize an annual art event that is organized for around a month. This year their exhibition and camp will be featuring young artists and promoting their talent and skills.

This special art programme will be a great platform for these budding artists to promote their work amongst the buyers and get an identity through these workshops and exhibitions. As this year, the schools are not organizing as many workshops and summer camps as they used to, so it is even an added advantage for this platform to be promoted and spread the word amongst the young artists. Various senior artists from this forum also organize their own workshops for young kids to learn new skills. They also have an amateur section for those who haven’t been introduced to this art and haven’t got an opportunity to develop their skills as yet.

These are some of the examples from which other art organizations or art galleries should learn and promote this great form of work among students in the urban as well as poor sector of Punjab.
