- BSPCA - art4all showcase an exhibition of different styles -
artists donate upto 30% of their sales to the BSPCA
The Bombay Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has the support of a group of artists who have earlier exhibited at Goa and Ahmedabad. The group is donating from 30% to 10% of their sales to the BSPCA. So support them and you support the BSPCA. The inauguration on the 5 th October saw brisk sales to a great art loving crowd, who are also animal lovers, at the Bajaj Art Gallery, Nariman Point, Mumbai.
For people who love landscapes, especially European scenes on canvas, Sunil S Mehta's landscapes are an ever-changing palette, from season to season. Sunil has worked with acrylics, oils and mixed media. His paintings reflect a natural world that is alive and restless, the impasto style creating beautiful imagery and depth and exploiting the richness of the paints. He has been well appreciated by those who have seen his portfolios, amongst them being many artists from abroad.
Joining him at the exhibition are two ladies who are wives of serving Naval officers based in Goa.
Veena Satish who paints figures in the Ravi Verma style and creates exquisite metal work. Veena is also good in figurative work but it is her metal work in copper plate which shines.
Sheba Nair who works are in the Tanjore style. Anyone who knows Tanjores, will appreciate how difficult they are to make; the labour involved and the strenuous attention to detail whilst using the gems and gold sheets to ensure visual accuracy. These works are a labour of love - most of them are of various gods from different religions and a few unusual pieces.
The highlight of the exhibition is that the beautiful works of art are available at an affordable price. So do come to the exhibition if you are in Mumbai and support the BSPCA.
Date: October 6th to 11th, 2010
Time: 11 am - 7 pm
Venue: Kamalnayan Bajaj Art gallery, Bajaj Bhavan, Opp CR2, Nariman Point, Mumbai
