ABSTRACT TREAT FOR CITY ART LOVERS:-
Lucknowites are in for a colourful ‘abstract’ treat as artist Ankita Singh is showcasing her paintings at the Florence Art Gallery in the city. The exhibition is titled ‘The Waves of Mind’.
Singh, who completed her Masters’s in Fine Arts from Indira Kala Sangeet University about a decade ago, said, “I always knew that I’d take my passion forward. I’ve been a part of over 15 group exhibitions and three solos. I also have a chance to show my work to a global audience at a group exhibition in China. This exhibition (in Lucknow) is all about my love for nature and is acrylic on canvas. It took years of hard work before I got a chance to showcase 70 of my finest works here.”
The exhibition was inaugurated by the vice-chancellor of Bhatkhande Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya Prof. Mandvi Singh praised Ankita Singh’s art. “Lucknow has been a seat of art and creativity. Such exhibitions bring contemporary colour to the horizon,” she said.
Also present at the exhibition was Rashmi Vaid as a guest of honour along with IG Police Ratan S Katiya, SN Singh, Mr. Sarvesh Goel, Ajaish Jaiswal, Neha Singh, and others.
Singh adds, “The exhibition is a tribute to the transformational power of art, and to my surprise, it is enthralling Lucknowites. My effort from now on is to showcase my work in the country as well as abroad.”
The expo is being managed by Rakesh K Maurya, curated by Rajesh Kumar, and supported by gallery founder Neha Singh informed the artist.
The event will go on till May 31 at the 5-star hotel The Centrum.
