24th Aug. – 5th Sept.’15: Pradarshak presents Vidyarthi Vishesh Phase IV – Graphic Prints, Still Life, etc.

Printmaking is a specialised subject that the students explore in college and use an array of tools to give expression to their art forms. From engraving on a wood substrate to etching on zinc plate, the artist’s expression is transferred on paper in a limited edition.

Each print thus taken is considered an original piece of art in limited edition of 2,3 or 4 and is marled by the artist as ‘AP’ a necessary inclusion in naming of the work of art.

Not a reproduction but a graphic representation of the artist’s work, prints are laborious to make but surprisingly less expensive to purchase. They are also framed in a special way.

In addition to prints, students will also be showcasing their still life paintings – typically commonplace objects that are painted from a live display. It is one of the oldest known methods of painting and also forms part of initial training for the art students to render an image ‘as is’ from a live display.

This show marks the last phase of Vidyarthi Vishesh 2015. 

Featured are: Mamta Mohan Yeram, Bhakti Vinod Gala, Nirmala Nagorao Wadker, Pranita Prakash Ambekar, Gajaanan Bhaskar Vaal, Ushita Nenmal Jain, Amit Swamy, Sujay Tulaskar, Abhay Tawade, Trupti Gomase, Shamali Sanjay Chavan and Sarambalkar Mithun Shivaji
