a call from one of our professors, at the c.n.college of fine-arts had us running to college to spend a day there attending a demonstration by two visiting artists.
it was pure nostalgia to be in the class room and see work in progress… which reminded us of years spent there…

The c.n college of fine arts, had an exhibition of artworks recently : paintings and sculptures of college students, alumni, and various eminent artists from the city were on display for bihar flood relief. The show was inaugrated in the presence of Haku Shah, Amit Ambalal , Ratilal Kansodaria , Devang Vyas , Suresh Sheth, and many other artists.

Good experience to have also put up our work for a cause.  few other upcoming artists like Vinod Patel  and Ronak Soparivala were also part of the event.

There is an immense enthusiasm in all the current students and a festive atmosphere on campus and stalls have been set up for their work according to their seniority to display their work.

We would like to congratulate the college principal and the professors , for organising such a wonderful show , and wish them the best for all their future endeavours… var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-33211292-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

There were four artists from verve that were part of the show : Margee Patel, Riddhi shah, Deviba Wala and Arpit Biloria and between us and are glad to have been able to contribute an amount from the sales of our work.
