Artist Rupa 'Bawari' lighting the lamp at the inauguration
Artistic Expressions by Amit Makwana was inaugurated at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (Prince of Wales Museum) at 5.30pm on November 9, 2011. For those interested the exhibition will be open from 10 am to 7 pm at the venue until November 13, 2011.

At the entrance
I reached early to take pictures without the crowd. I reached there at about 3.40 pm to be welcomed by the artist, Amit Makwana and his wife, Kruti. They were very happy with the response that they had got at the exhibition at Jaipur and were quite confident that it will be as good here in Mumbai. I wish them all the very best!

The hall where the exhibition is being held
The hall at the museum was huge and the poems and digital art by Amit Makwana along with the paintings by Anuradha Thakur and Shefali Chauhan were displayed all over and made for a beautiful ambience.

  1. good, well written Sundari. The pics have come out perfectly :)

  2. @Nilima,
    yeah, I thought so too. As I had already done the interview, I thought it is better to speak through pictures that each speaks a thousand words, anyway ;)
    what say?

  3. pics are so beautiful Sundari ...
