She wears many hats, and it's difficult to say what she's best at. Perhaps it's this. It really doesn't matter.

Dr. Alka Raghuvanshi is exhibiting her paintings on 11th April, at the Kalahita Art Foundation in Nagarjuna Hills. The exhibition, titled Whispers Of Light, contains 20 paintings by Dr Alka Raghuvanshi.

The series are inspired by the dexterity of the Indian weaver as he echoes the colors in nature on the fabric he creates — be it the deep rich reds from Saurashtra or the ephemeral, shadowy mixed palette from Maheshwar or the deep purples from Uppada and emerald greens from Kanjeewaram.

Dr. Raghuvanshi wears many hats - she is among the few authorities on the arts to traverse the folk and the classical arts, the performing and the plastic arts, and the crafts and aesthetics with ease, and is known for her crusading spirit for the arts.

She is India's first trained art curator, having trained at the Goldsmiths College, London, and the Museum of Modern Art, Oxford. She has curated and designed nearly 10 major exhibitions, many of which travelled to other parts of the country and the world as well.

A senior columnist and author, she has been on the editorial teams of the Indian Express, The Times Of lndia and the BBC. She was the arts editor of Pioneer and the editor Swagat, and launched, the first website of its kind on the performing and visual arts.

She has authored and edited over 20 books, including A Moment In Time With Legends of Indian Arts, Pathfinders — Artistes Of One World, Garhwal Himalayas — Where the Gods Whisper and Indian Jewels — For a Queen's Ransom, and has won several national and international awards.

The exhibition will be on view 25th April. For further details, please contact the art gallery at 2335-0543.
