    Published on March 7, 2021

    New Delhi: Having successfully conducted the first day of its All India Women’s National Art Camp in celebration of International Women‘s Day, Lalit Kala Akademi, India’s National Academy of Art, an autonomous organization of the Ministry of Culture, Government of India, conducted the second day of the camp with flair today.

    The theme for International Women’s Day this year “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world,” and it highlights the massive contribution that women have made in overcoming the challenges posed by the pandemic. They, therefore, deserve an equal share in the future as they always have, and this is what Lalit Kala Akademi seeks to showcase through the artworks prepared by 29 virtuosic female artists who are attending the event from different regions in the country. 

    As soon as the day began, the women artists set up their canvases and started creating magic with colors, taking the audience members on a mystical, enchanting journey. While some artists took a more classical approach and represented the ideas of womanhood more concretely, others went for impressionism and painted out their feelings on the canvas. The camp will continue until Sunday (7th March 2021), after which, the artworks created during the three days will be showcased alongside 200 other artworks by several well-renowned artists in the country at “Akshaya Patra”, the International Women Artists exhibition at the Rabindra Bhavan Galleries on 8th March 2021.  

    At Lalit Kala Akademi, we’ve always made it our goal to support the talented artists in the countryand this event, in its entirety, is an extension of that philosophy. By conducting the All Women’sNational Art Camp at Garhi Studios, we seek to empower talented female artists from all over thecountry and give them a platform to showcase their eye-catching, heart-touching artworks. Garhi isone of the oldest platforms in the country that has been giving exposure to the artists. The artists, inturn, respect Garhi as a temple as well. Hopefully, we will be successful in our mission and these talented women artists will get the appreciation and credit that they deserve. I also hope that this will inspire other women to pursue their passions as well so that we can move towards a freer, more equal, and prosperous future,” said Dr. Uttam Pacharne, Chairman, Lalit Kala Akademi

    Akshaya Patra will be an all-women’s art exhibition and it’ll coincide with the International Women’s Day celebrations. This multi-dimensional art show, exhibiting works of senior, young and budding art practitioners, has both Indian and international participants as it brings to the fore contemporary, tribal, international, and Avante Garde art practices worldwide, themed around the many faces and benefactions of Mother Nature.
