<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>An exhibition of traditional and folk art, showcasing Indian traditional art forms, has been organised by Art for Concern from November 1 to 3 at the Goethe institute in Kala Ghoda.According to the show’s organiser, in a country of vibrant and vast traditions of art forms, the artisans barely receive any exposure and patronage that they require to stay relevant. Hence Art for Concern’s exhibition is an attempt to showcase these indigenous art forms and artists, and ensure that their legacy prevails.The show brings together traditional art from across India, giving a window of exposure to the dying forms that represent the fascinating folklore of each region. The idea is to help traditional art gain the same audience as contemporary Indian art.The artworks have been sourced from the finest traditional and folk artisans from various parts of the country, giving them the opportunity to showcase their work in a prominent venue with access to a range of buyers.The exhibition, organised by Secure Giving Events and supported by EXIM Bank, will display over 40 artworks which will also be available for sale. The funds raised will go towards supporting grassroots-level NGOs working in the areas of health, education and community development.Visitors of the exhibition can expect to find terracotta plaques unique to Molela, a small village on the banks of the Banas River, and Madhubani from Bihar. Madhya Pradeshi Gond works hang besides striking Chola bronzes from Tamil Nadu, Phads and Pichwais from Rajasthan, Mata ni Pachedis from Gujarat, Pattachitra from Odisha and Kalighat paintings from the east.
