Students and art enthusiasts were showing great enthusiasm at the ongoing folk art and folk dance festival, Lokrang at JKK. In collaboration with Rajasthan Lalit Kala Akademi, Jaipur, the exhibition ‘Rang-Lok’ is being organized in JKK’s Contemporary Art Gallery. In this exhibition, visitors can see the contemporary visual art of Jaipur and Rajasthan.
According to the name ‘Rang Lok’, the exhibition has many creative paintings made of oil and acrylic paint on lage canvas. Along with the paintings of Havelis of Shekhawati by Khetanchi and Amer Fort by Bhim Singh, the sight of Radha-Krishna playing Holi and the painting of Lord Krishna playing the flute for Radha by Nathu Lal, forces everyone to stop for a moment. In Gauri Shankar’s 2-D and 3-D paintings, creativity is so outspoken that the painter seems to have demonstrated the efforts and struggles of each human being to get out of their limited confines.
Similarly, art installations were catching the eyes of the visitors. Art work and sculptures by senior and award-winning artists like Vidya Sagar Upadhyay, Arjun Prajapati, are enhancing the charm of this exhibition. Similarly, through his creative wood work, Lakhan Singh has expressed the sentiments of children through his creative wood work.
It is to be noted that during the Lokrang various exhibitions held at JKK in the Contemporary, Surekha and Sudarshan Art Galleries. Visitors witnessed innovative art forms at these exhibitions from 11 am to 7 pm till 20 October. Entry was free for these exhibitions.
