Art workshop in Sambalpur

Sambalpur is celebrating a colourful Durga Puja with its artists gathering together to express their feelings on canvas this festive season. Over 30 painters assembled at Sakhipada Hanuman temple on Sunday to participate in a workshop titled ‘My Sambalpur’ where they depicted the beauty of the town with paint and brush.

The Sambalpur Working Artists’ Association (SWAA) organized the workshop. “This is our attempt to add colour to the festive mood,” said SWAA president Pramod Mishra. Sambalpur boasts of various art institutions but due to lack of patronage they are struggling to survive. “There are hundreds of M F Hussains in the country, but it is difficult to bring them to the limelight due to lack of support and sponsorship. So we have decided to promote young artists of the locality,” said SWAA secretary Nrusinghnath Nayak.
