Art exhibition to foster unity in NE

GUWAHATI: To foster a spirit of brotherhood and integrity among artists and people of the northeast, four artists have come together to organize an art exhibition at the State Art Gallery here.

Artists R K Somorjit Singh, H Kependra Singh and Debendra Singh from Manipur and Siva Prasad Marar from Assam have come together to display their works on canvas and wood at the exhibition titled "Unity" that was inaugurated by noted sculptor and artist Benu Mishra.

About 19 paintings and some sculptures were put on display at the State Art Gallery. The paintings were mostly abstract.

"Most of the paintings are new and are based on nature and landscape made in an abstract form. The aim of the exhibition is to foster and spread a spirit of unity not only amongst the artist fraternity but also amongst the people. Art and culture are the two aspects that can usher this spirit," said Manipur artist Somorjit Singh.
When asked what the artists would like to say to the people of the region, they said, "The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things but their inward significance as well, and art makes life more enjoyable. Life without art is valueless. Through 'Unity' we want to usher the sense of peace and integrity and our desire is to bring emotional integrity amongst the people in the northeast."

"Unity" will be open for public till November 24.
