IVSAA’s Faculty Art Exhibition
Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture is hosting its first ever Faculty Art Exhibition. The exhibition started today and will continue till the mid of March. It is open to the public from 10 a.m to 7 30 p.m from Monday to Friday and 10 a.m to 5 p.m on Saturday. Showcased for everyone to see are paintings, sculpture, metalwork, printmaking designs, miniature paintings, videos and postcards by local artists that include Meher Afroz, Ather Jamal, Rashid Arshed, Arshad Faruqui, Noorjehan Bilgrami, David Pritum to name a few.. I especially enjoyed pieces that celebrated and honoured femininity and nature. Some Quranic calligraphy was also particularly beautiful. My most favourite would be a water colour painting by Ather Jamal titled “Old Karachi” (where he beautifully paints a picturesque Saddar in great detail) and “The Impotent Fruit” by Rabeya Jalil. Check it out for yourself.
And oh, they also have sandwiches and biscuits for the visitors ;)
