Dhaka, Jan 17 (UNB) - The inaugural ceremony of group painting exhibition 'Preceptor-Disciple: Disciple-Preceptor' will be held at Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) at 5:30 pm on Friday.
Eminent artist Monirul Islam will inaugurate the exhibition as the chief guest while Dhaka University’s Fine Art faculty Dean Nisar Hossain and art connoisseurs Abdullah Al Mahmud and Mikhail I Islam will attend as special guests.
The Oriental Painting Studio Bangladesh is going to present its first group exhibition at La Galerie of AFD featuring artists Amit Nandi, Malay Bala, and Zahangir Alom, who will showcase oriental paintings ranging from classical to contemporary.
From the mythical sagas like the vignettes of Shakuntala, the eternal love between Radha-Krishna, and the political aspects from the Mahabharata to the realistic, abstract, semi-abstract, symbolic, and modern presentations of the idyllic beauty of Bengal, portraits of the towering literary and cultural personalities like Tagore and Nazrul, and the contemporary socio-political and cultural features all have manifested gracefully in their canvasses.
Based in Dhaka, the trio, following the conventional Guru-Shishya Parampara, runs various art activities like practising, exhibiting and promoting oriental art in Bangladesh.
They also run the Oriental Painting Study Group that has successfully organised eight oriental painting exhibitions with the participation of national and international artists.
The artists of the studio are committed to open up new possibilities for oriental art in Bangladesh.
There are around 50 artworks in mixed media will be on display for this exhibition. The exhibition will be open to all till Friday, February 1.
The visitors may throng the exhibition on Monday to Thursday from 3:00 pm to 9:00 pm and on Friday and Saturday from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon and 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
