Art is all-pervasive, and the students of the Fine Arts Society of SGTB Khalsa College portrayed their imagination beautifully across the broad horizons of their college.Strokes- the Fine Arts Society of SGTB Khalsa College organized their annual art exhibition, Duende, on 17th and 18th October 2016 to display the exciting work of their zealous artists. The event was set up at the heart of the college, the famous Jannat, and attracted eyes and interests through the two days. The area was adorned with a variety of shapes and forms of paper matches hanging above the people, giving a shade of ethereal beauty to the contiguous area.
With more than thirty paintings displayed, decorated and placed in the structure of a circle, each painting captured the imagination and wove a beautiful aura amidst the sublime atmosphere. Themes such as life style, new beginnings, fire and ice, sacred love and many others were captured. A fascinating visual was seen with inspiring paintings hanging and the session of live painting which gave a chance to the people to get their portraits drawn. The artistry displayed was exquisite and gave birth to some brilliant pieces! The creative streak did not only end there; the visitors were also invigorated to see the quirky craft station set up. With bookmarks, paper corners, envelopes, cards, dream catchers and many other handmade products, Duende did justice to transcending the essence of art across a multitude of platforms, which piqued appraise and interest.
A member of the society, summarised the experience on the first day as, ‘The turnout was huge even at the first day at college after mid semester break. People who visited the exhibition were astonished by the work done by the artists which further increased the enthusiasm in the members.’With an amalgamation of a quirky theme, inspiring paintings, and personalized stationery and activities, the members of Strokes painted a background which contended the aesthetic hues and left the audience sure to be moved!
