If you subscribe to the involvement of the audience in a workshop being significantly
more than that in an exhibition, then this is perhaps only a distant cousin of
the workshop conducted at the S N School, and sponsored by the Lalit Kala Academy,
Chennai, recently. The good part is that all the 3 visiting and 20 local artists
that demonstrated there are back here. And the prints that were done there are
being exhibited here. The not-so-good part, like we said, is relevant only if
you haven't been there.
The 3 visiting professors include R M Palaniappan, the Director of the Lalit Kala
Academy, Ajit Dubey of Bangalore, professor of the Chitra Kala Parishad, and Balasundaram,
a freelance printmaker from Chennai. The artists from Hyderabad include D L N
Reddy, Laxma Goud, Shyamsunder, Anjani Reddy, Kavita Deuskar and Sudhakar.
