Don’t miss this ‘art walk’ by Yamini Telkar, a renowned expert on Indian art

A unique initiative by Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi to familiarise art lovers in the region with the history of print-making in India

Lovers of art please take note. Yamini Telkar, a well-known expert on modern Indian art and art history from Mumbai will hold two curatorial art walks to help viewers understand and appreciate the art of print-making in Indian art. The sessions of approximately 90 minutes each will be held in the galleries of Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi, Punjab Kala Bhawan, Rose garden, Sector 16 B, Chandigarh.

Ms Telkar will give important insights into the history of print-making, its origins and artists who engaged themselves in this revolutionary period. Amidst 124 original artworks by masters of print-making, it would be a valuable lesson in the history of 400 years of Indian print-making and rare opportunity to witness, feel and explore the nuances of visual arts from a close distance.

In the first art walk, starting at 10:30 am, 50 students and teachers from Apeejay, Jalandhar will immerse themselves in information about the political and social developments taking place in the world and India and anecdotes about artists, their personal lives and artistic activities by Ms Telkar. She will also talk about how print-making was introduced in India and Indian artists got influenced or inspired

The second art walk will start at 12 noon. It is open to all art enthusiasts and students from Chandigarh College of Art. This initiative is the first of its kind in the region. DAG, a private art gallery in Delhi with footprints in Mumbai and New York has been extremely helpful in bringing this rare exhibition of such a large collection of original artworks to Punjab.

All the events will take place inside the art gallery in the midst of original artworks at Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi, Punjab Kala Bhawan, Rose Garden, Sector 16 B, Chandigarh.
