An exclusive visual art exhibition “Aaj Rang Hai” by Ashima Mehrotra is held at the India International Center, Main Art Gallery in New Delhi.

The exhibition was opened by Judge KS Ahluwalia (President of the Railway Claims Tribunal), Ashutosh Gangal (General Manager of the Northern Railway) and Dinesh K Patnaik (General Manager of the Indian Council for Cultural Relations).

Aashima Mehrotra, a renowned visual artist said: “She has always been motivated by art since her childhood. Art was his passion, his talent and his flair for art were recognized by his father, his teachers and even his neighbors ”.

As she loved art, painting was her first choice to express her artistic ideas. Ashima was convinced that working with visual forms would be the best approach to shape her ideas. ‘

In fact, Aashima has been a public servant and has worked with Indian Railways for two decades. Her dedication to art drove her to continue practicing the art and she gradually became known as a visual artist who successfully honed and matured her painting skills under the guidance of famous painter Shri Vir Munshi. It was very important that Aashima’s professional life as a bureaucrat helped her to be an artist in a meaningful way. Her work in railways and tourism allowed her to draw inspiration from the diversity of Indian cities and traditional art forms and today she is a well-known visual artist.

The Habatat Galleries in Royal Oak, America’s largest and oldest space dedicated to works of glass art, will celebrate their 50th anniversary on Saturday with an exhibition of 400 works by some of the world’s best glass artists.

The free event takes place from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The gallery will also be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for guests preferring lighter traffic. Masks are recommended inside the space.

Brothers Aaron Schey and Corey Hampson are the second generation owners of Habatat. Founder Ferdinand Hampson guided Habatat from an early stage gallery to international recognition in the world of glass art.

“We invited 65 artists from all over the world to send works here,” Schey said. “We have created special displays for each of them throughout the gallery. They are some of the best artists in the world working in this medium, and we want everyone to come and share this experience. And for those who can’t make it, we’ve teamed up with the Glass Art Fair online to share the work digitally.

Habatat Gallery

Habatat opened in 1971 and moved to Royal Oak in 2001. Ferdinand Hampson founded the gallery nine years after the notion of glass as art was conceived in a garage on the grounds of the Toledo Art Museum.

“For 50 years, the Habatat Galleries have promoted, legitimized and elevated new artistic material to a point of recognition by the artistic community,” said Ferdinand Hampson. “In 1963, the first glass course was offered at the University of Wisconsin, and over the next decade several colleges began programs. , collectors and art publications.

TVNs, I am often told, are the future. My main problem is the name. It’s abbreviated, I would say, because no one knows what fungible means.

However, there is no doubt that they are all around us (whoever they are). The latest digital art exhibition took place this week at the Saatchi Gallery in London in the form of an immersive private view leading up to an auction which runs until Wednesday, September 22. The auction aims to raise funds for Saatchi Gallery Learning, an initiative that aims to build commitment to the arts with schools and community groups.

Viewing digital artwork can be tricky, but at Hendrick’s G (NF) & T exhibit at the Saatchi Gallery, they used something called Holologauze.

Holologauze is a screen technology that is a lightweight, highly reflective and highly transparent video projection canvas. With the correct lighting conditions, high definition hologram effects can be created and the technology is also scalable for large scale outdoor holograms. Which is pretty cool.

The works are by four established and upcoming artists.

Digital surrealist artist Ray Caesar whose Persephone shows the goddess of the underworld waiting in a metro station called Elysian Flds.

The work of author and cultural commentator Raven Smith is Summer, an animated text image that scrolls past the viewer as if it were underwater.

Polly Morgan is a British artist who works with concrete, polyurethane and taxidermy. His work is Originals In, a video of blocks that move to reveal a slippery surprise inside. It’s beautiful, and a little confusing.

Finally, my favorite is O (a) k Computer – Midsummer Night by Jake Elwes, a media artist living and working in London whose work often explores artificial intelligence research.

It’s a virtual journey through an old oak tree on Hampstead Heath in London, with, he says, “a sound piece that was generated using artificial intelligence trained on the British ’60s band – The Kinks “. It’s a mesmerizing and rewarding sight.

You can see all the works and bid on rarible.com. If you go, you will see that the work was commissioned by Hendrick’s Gin to commemorate last summer which, for many reasons, was different from others.

As mentioned above, the popular gin brand humorously referred to it at the G & (NF) T Summer Escape Show.

Tangmarg: A five-day art and painting workshop jointly organized by the Arts in Life Initiative Foundation (ALIF) and Callisto, at the AlIF Art Residence in Chanpora, Tangmarg of Baramulla District concluded today with the works by ten artists exhibited on the last day.
Describing the event as an extraordinary effort by the Arts in Life Initiative Foundation (ALIF) and Callisto, Professor Zahoor Ahmad Zargar, eminent artist and former dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi said that Kashmir has great potential for artists.

Participants presenting art at the event

He recognized the fact that there is little or no opportunity for artists in Kashmir in the absence of galleries and art residences. “As we live in difficult times, the effort of the organizers is commendable and it is the need of the hour to hold together and create an atmosphere conducive to art,” he said, adding that the artists had put on a great exhibition even without support or sponsorship.

Participants presenting art at the event

He added that art could easily secure financial promises if there are good trainers and guides for young students. “Students need to know how the art bazaar behaves, what paintings are being sold, and how to place and position the works under the current circumstances,” Zargar said.

Participants presenting art at the event

Expressing his satisfaction and joy at setting up an art gallery at the ALIF residency at Chanpora Tangmarg, he said the initiative can be a good support and encouragement for young budding artists. “This is probably the first of its kind in Kashmir and such a magnificent art residence nestled in the apple orchard and a beautiful ambience will surely attract not only local artists but also national and international artists who, has he said, would love to spend time here and work.

Shahid Ali Khan, cultural manager at the University of Kashmir, who was the event’s advisor when showcasing the therapeutic nature of art, said such events were necessary to boost students’ artistic ambitions. “The world has widely recognized the beauty of art and its essence when it comes to the human spirit and the positive behaviors it inaugurates. This is especially important when we are faced with a crisis like Covid which has impacted everyone’s peace of mind, ”he said, adding that he would support such events for his sake. personal belief in art and the importance of all art forms to human life.

Participants presenting art at the event

Declaring the event to be a new experience, Shabir Ahmad Wani, founder of the MTM school, Chandilora said he was happy to see such an initiate take concrete form. “It’s an amazing event with artists coming together and producing beautiful works of art here,” Wani said, adding that such initiatives were too rare but desperately needed.
Claiming that students of all ages are interested in art, but given the lack of opportunities, they often hold back their ambitions. “These workshops and exhibitions will surely instill new hope in young students,” said Wani, applauding the company.

Participants presenting art at the event

Professor Zahoor Ahmad Zargar was the main guest on the occasion with Shabir Ahmad Wani.
Stating that this was the first time after the Covid pandemic that an offline event had been organized, President Callisto, Tasaduq Hussain said it was a great opportunity for artists to come together and work in the perfect atmosphere for art.

AlIF member Basharat Bashir while thanking the participants, guests as well as the main guest said that ALIF tries to create opportunities for young artists and that the workshop is a joint effort of artists trying to be visible. “It is unfortunate that we live in a place which is a great motivation for artists but yet lacks basic facilities for artists. We have teamed up to create our own space and assert ourselves, ”said Basharat, adding that in the future more such workshops would be held on a regular basis in addition to the art residency programs. He added that artists, in the absence of any support – both government and private – were consuming various fields of activity in order to survive, which, he added, was unfortunate. “Let’s not stay disconnected and unite for a larger cause,” he advised young artists as well as art lovers.

Participants presenting art at the event

Artists who presented their works included Nadeem Mushtaq, Tasaduq Hussain, Zahoor Kashmiri, Altaf Ahmad Khan, Jamshed Iqbal, Basharat Bashir, Ghazala Fatima and Mudasir Gul.

The program was one of a kind in Kashmir and was attended by students of the Srinagar Art School as well as art lovers in addition to dignitaries.

The Cawein Gallery of Art is proud to unveil its first exhibition for fall 2021 – Break your pony through Dagny walton. The showcase will run until October 7 and is available for a weekday visit from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., or contact Tyler Brumfield, art and design professor and gallery director at brum1878@pacificu.edu to make an appointment .

All guests at campus events are urged to be vaccinated and comply with all campus requirements to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please visit pacificu.edu/coronavirus for the Pacific COVID-19 protocol.

Artist biography:

Dagny Walton was born in Fort Collins, Colorado, a college town at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. They left Colorado to pursue undergraduate studies in Classical Studies at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Their degree mainly focused on mythology and religious practices, an interest they brought to their work on the American West. Since leaving Vancouver, they have lived in Missoula, Montana, where they are pursuing their Masters of Fine Arts. While all of their pieces start out as computer files, they have recently embraced screen printing as a way to bring digital work to life.

Artist statement:

To love the American West is to love a deeply ugly ideal. The glorified story of the westward expansion is racist and bloodstained. The land is beautiful, but destroyed for the good of the extractive industry or the victim of endless forest fires. The myth of the West is a feverish dream. Despite the chaos and the occasional presence of violence in my pieces, I often feel comforted by making them, as if they provided the answers to something I must always have known but never heard out loud. The culture and history of this place need to be ordered, so that a meaning is given to the ruin. I love to inject vestiges of ancient mythology into my pieces – creatures and symbols of millennia of the collective unconscious. The presence of these remains helps me better understand the West by understanding it in terms much older than its own tiny but eventful history.

I also employ the use of new symbols in my work, creating my own kind of modern pantheon for the West. The cowboy is the hero-icon of the West, a symbol of core American values ​​- freedom, tenacity, expansion. His presence is omnipresent here. Western films parade the cowboy as the embodiment of a parchmented border existence. Painters like Charles Marion Russell imagined the West as Edenic, the cowboy acting as an unofficial steward of the land and its creatures. Now cowboys sell us cigarettes and hard liquor at dusty highway gas stations.

I use the versatile and versatile image of the cowboy as the cornerstone of a cultural critique of the American West. I also take our mountains and our deserts, and these become the backdrop to a world of masculine fantasy. In my plays, I present cowboys who cross the line between harshness and brutality, who stage theatrical displays of violence, and who lazily watch the constant and unstoppable destruction of the land we covet.

Nowhere else in the United States is there such a concrete or messy concept of regionalism, any more than there is another region that so fully encompasses the self-taught construction of what the United States is. . The cowboy, the eternal mythological hero of the West, is synonymous with tenacity to the point of cruelty, expansion that turns into greed, and greed that almost guarantees total destruction. Without the cowboy, America as we know it would not exist.

The ‘HOME’ art exhibition will be held at the Cultúrlann Sweeney Gallery, Kilkee, Co. Clare: August 30 to October 2, 2021

This exhibit is in memory of Betty Cauldwell (née Counihan) – the artist who passed away in April 2020. Betty’s insightful eye and ability to capture the essence of her subject matter is truly reflected in this exhibit.

Betty left us a wonderful legacy to include the sea and the landscapes of West Clare of exceptional beauty. Born in Kilrush in 1926, the eldest of five children to Dr Dick Counihan and Enid (née Glynn), Betty was educated in Kilrush, Limerick and University College Dublin where she studied to become a dentist. Married to Peter Cauldwell, also a dentist, who wrote poetry upon retirement, they spent much of their lives in England. Both of their hearts remained on the west coast of Clare and they returned “home” as often as they could. Betty began painting in earnest in her fifties and continued to paint until her eyesight began to falter shortly after her husband’s death in 2001.

Betty was trained at the Lichfield School of Art and has exhibited with the Lichfield Society of Artists and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. She won several awards, including the Armor-Brown Prize in 1991. She also exhibited at Kilkee at the Krazy Krauts Gallery in 1992. As a result of this exhibition she received a number of commissions, mainly to reproduce these wonderful seascapes, rural images and portraits of Clare. She has worked in a variety of mediums: oils, watercolor, acrylic and pastel.

One of Betty’s paintings, depicting Moore Bay, Kilkee, hangs in the permanently exhibited Kilkee Library. This is an action shot from the Kilkee Air Sea rescue. The photo has been temporarily moved to a display in the library commemorating Caitriona Lucas, the Irish Coast Guard volunteer whose “sunrise” was on June 18, 1975, and whose “sunset” was on September 12, 2016, in search of a lost soul – a premature and deeply tragic death that all Kilkee remembers.

This exhibition captures the essence and growth of Betty’s life as an artist, from simple early sketches to extremely detailed and textured paintings. Some themes of the exhibit include coastal scenes from Kilkee, Lahinch Golf Course, fruits and flowers, portraits and unique works of art. Betty’s time is over but her art lives on and this exhibition gives attendees the opportunity to acquire original “local” Irish works and prints and to help others.

Through this exhibit, the family is seeking to raise funds for the local charity, the West Clare Cancer Center. All sales will be donated to this voluntary organization. Funding for the West Clare Cancer Center comes from their community through many different events held each year.

‘HOME’ at the Cultúrlann Sweeney Gallery, Kilkee, Co. Clare, August 30 to October 2, 2021.
