Online Preview - Vidyarthi Vishesh 2013

Pradarshak presents
 “Vidyarthi Vishesh 2013” – The Annual Student Art Exhibition

Phase I -  Abstracts: 3rd -   13th July 


Pradarshak is proud to present "Vidyarthi Vishesh" - the student special in its eighteenth consecutive year. Participating are around 35 students from leading colleges of art in Mumbai, Pune, Nagpur, Sangli, Latur and Nasik.  

Vidyarthi Vishesh is an exhibition that highlights diverse styles, techniques and mediums and is truly affordable!! The artists traverse through a gamut of personal experiences, general observations and the diabolic imprint of the social scenario. The bouquets and the brickbats carve the psyche of the individual artist as he/she banks on the creative expression of his brush to delve deeper into his impressionist as well as expressionist self and at times, into surrealist forays.

In its third successive year online, the exhibition's voting system is also open online, inviting art lovers to vote for as many paintings as they like. The most favoured artist will be awarded for ‘Public Choice’. 


The Concept: Based on an interactive principle, the student exhibition extends over a period of 8 weeks and has been phased out to convenience the art enthusiast. It features creative and thought-provoking realistic and semi-realistic paintings apart from a host of Graphic Prints, Drawings, Still Life, Seascapes, Cityscapes, Landscapes, Compositions, as well as Semi-abstract paintings. Since last year, we’ve also introduced sculptures and metalwork.


The body of work is expansive and selected from the Elementary, Intermediate, Advanced, Diploma, Degree and Post Graduate classes. This gives the students a chance to observe in a mixed sphere, relate to techniques and applications, and learn from each other; it also initiates them into the art of presentation and pricing.

This year the prices range from a minimum of Rs.1000 to a maximum of Rs. 15,000/- thus making original art from the ‘artists of tomorrow’ accessible and affordable.


The Awards: Since 2003, the gallery has instituted two awards to the students every year: One is based on “Public Choice” and is collated using a voter system, where every visitor is asked to list 3 paintings in the order of his preference. The second award is based on “Gallery Choice”, where the technicalities and growth of the student artist is considered by the gallery. The awards for the previous year are presented in the current year.
