She thanked the guests for their gracious presence and said ‘‘students eagerly wait for the annual exhibition wherein they reveal their artsy best to the veterans of Art and Culture through their works.”
Addressing the gathering, Mr. Niren Sengupta said that it is important for an artist to be thoughtful of the work one is doing. He averred that being creative is a difficult task as it requires a person to conceptualize an idea and then bring it in form of real art. Focusing on Art as a potent medium to express social messages, he encouraged students to completely express their creativity and let it flow freely so that they can truly come up with masterpieces of art.
Lauding the outstanding art work of students, Dr. Archana Garodia said that the quality of art during the exhibition is of incredible quality and at par with the work of experienced professional artists. She called upon the women artists to never let their creative flame go down as many women artists soon give back seat to their talent with time and circumstances.
Dr.Pawan Jain said that the creative boundaries of different domains are blurring. She urged the budding artists not to restrict one’s talent in a particular domain and advised them to explore other dimensions where their creativity could be utilized.
