An art camp for MSSI

A two-day art camp saw the city’s eminent artists and buyers coming forward to help multiple sclerosis patients

A visitor stepping into Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT), Madhapur, would assume some kind of festivity is on. The weekend witnessed a good turnout in the premises, which was the meeting point for artists and buyers. A few artists put their brush, pen and pencil to canvas at the venue as visitors stopped by, observed and interacted with the artists.

The CCRT hosted a two-day art camp where a large collection of works from eminent artists were up for sale, the proceeds going towards multiple sclerosis patients through Multiple Sclerosis Society of India (MSSI). Amita Talwar, curating the event on behalf of Art for Causes, was pleased with the response. “The buyers are enthusiastic, since there is no commission that’s normally associated with galleries and the artists obliged to give their work at a relatively lower price. We’ve managed to sell quite a few paintings and sculptures,” she says.

On view and for sale were sculptures from B. Srinivas Reddy’s Swayambhu series, fibre glass sculptures by B. Rohini Reddy, bronze sculptures by G. Ramakrishna, bronze, copper and wood works by M. Srinivasa Rao, A. Kiran Kumar, M. Sreenu and Sivarama Chary. The surprise was the ‘Small Bronze Head’ in gilded gold and painted bronze by Ravinder Reddy, a name familiar in international art auctions.

The collection of paintings came from established artists such as Thota Vaikuntam, Laxman Aelay, Fawad Tamkanath, Ramesh Gorjala, Chippa Sudhakar, Chintala Jagdish, Laxma Goud, DLN Reddy, Rajeshwar Rao, Suryaprakash, Sachin Jaltare and others. Among the younger crop, there was Akshay Anand’s depiction of an Irani Café, Gouri Vemula’s monochrome pen and ink image of Ganesha and Swati Rajadhyax’s Circusland.

Sumanto Chowdhury and Srinivas Tingeerkar were among the artists busy with their canvases at the venue, along with aspiring artists like Nikita Ravishankar. Sumanto’s was a pen and pencil sketch on paper while Srinivas, who specialises in print making, dabbled with mixed media.


All these paintings will be displayed at Shilpakala Vedika on September 13 evening, leading up to Usha Uthup’s performance for MSSI.
