The creative concoction of more than 75 diverse artworks at Aura International Art Show makes Kanoria Centre for Arts the utopia of visual arts in Ahmedabad. Enthusiasts can experience an array of artworks contributed by 38 prodigies, experienced and self-taught artists until December 3, 2017. The creators hail from 18 different cities of India, Dubai and Bangladesh and everyone is portraying their expertise under this exhibition. The event also has a competition section wherein the best of the artworks will be adjudged by eminent jury and awarded recognition.

Curator Mayank Vyas and founder of Radart initiative told us, “Top 15 artists will be bestowed with medals on the last day of the exhibition, and this is our 7th such competitive show. We promote artists by helping them join our portal and popularise their artworks through us. Our exhibitions are nominally charged so that maximum number of artists can be reached and benefitted.” Vyas is also a self-taught artist who was previously serving as a marketer in the financial sector and altered his professional ways to follow his passion. Connoisseurs can find a variety of mediums as artists have composed artworks using etching, relief, clay work, acrylic, oil, watercolours, paper mesh, and glass to provide the audience with a fusion experience.

The showcase is introduced with a huge chapatti hanging on the wall by Uttam Kumar Roy, following with Kishore Rajhans’ Divine Touch paintings of Tribal and indigenous cultures. Few detailed pieces that completely left my imagination bewildered were Pratibha Chadar’s Macaw Parrot, Dayal Verma’s 24 karat gold made Rajasthani Pichwai, and Kurmi Anandkumar’s Sleeping Beauty. The depth of Aura touching grassroots of art fraternity was realised when I heard people like watercolourist Hadiraza Devjani a Bhavnagar based hearing-impaired artist, who got a new motivation to live with pride through this opportunity and sculptor Tushar Mavani who makes glass sculptures using a 900-degree centigrade furnace.

The show was inaugurated by Senior artist Natu Mistry and CD Mistry. The Indore based art gallery has specially invited two Ahmedabad based artists to be part of the group show – Priya Pariyani and Vijay Shrimali.
