Kalamandir - The Celluloid Chapter Art Foundation Of Jharkhand, in association with the Development Commissioner (Handicrafts), Govt. of India, is organising an exhibition of handicrafts, from 20th to 31st March, at the YMCA Hall in Narayanaguda. A small exhibition with just 10 stalls, this one has exhibits that are rare and reasonably priced.
The exhibition is quite different from the regular Lepakshi ones, with plenty of variety. It include faces made with the roots of trees, polished wooden statues, bronze and brass artifacts, artificial jewelry, clay masks, Dokra casting art, jute bags and mobile covers.
There is also a live demonstration on embroidery, wooden sculpture and Pyatkar paintings (scroll paintings) by the artisans. The artisans come from various tribes such as Santals, Bhumijs, Mundas, Kargas, Guntha Layeks, Mahalis and Thetris, residing in far-off tribal belts such as Rugrisai, Chandil, Bado Kadol, Hata, Chakulia and Gamharia.
The entry is free. Please contact the venue at 2756-4670 for further details.
