PAINT­ING DREAMS

Lau­rels for pro­fes­sional and bud­ding tric­ity artists

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - City - - Entertainment -

Fa­mous artist Vin­cent Van Gogh had said: “I dream of paint­ing and then I paint my dream.” This would be true of many artists. The Chandi­garh Lalit Kala Akademi went through the dreams painted by pro­fes­sional and stu­dent artists for awards and dis­play at the Chandi­garh Lalit Kala Akademi An­nual Art Ex­hi­bi­tion com­ing up in March.

In the pro­fes­sional cat­e­gory, three awards of Rs 50,000 each were given to Aradhna Tan­don (paint­ing), Man­jot Kaur (paint­ing) and Man­meet Kaur (graph­ics). Merit cer­tifi­cates were awarded to Jas­pal Ka­mana (photography), San­deep Ku­mar (draw­ing) and Ila Choud­hary (mixed me­dia).

In the stu­dents’ cat­e­gory, five award win­ners of Rs 25,000 each in­cluded Ka­neesh Pan­otra (mixed me­dia), Ra­man Ku­mar Khushwa (mixed me­dia), Garima Chand­hok (photography), Deek­sha Soni (graph­ics) and Kuldeep (mixed me­dia). Be­sides this, to en­cour­age the pur­suit of art, merit cer­tifi­cates have also been awarded to Chi­tra Bhadani (sculp­ture), Tarun­deep Kaur (paint­ing) and Man­isha Bha­tia (graph­ics). A spe­cial award, for un­con­ven­tional work was given to San­chit Ab­hay Gupta (sculp­ture).

The award from noted ar­chi­tect BV Doshi con­sists of Rs 20,000 and is aptly named the Ar­chi­tect BV Doshi Award.
