Describe an art exhibition that you visited.

Art has always been an integral part of humanity and every human civilization – be it the art pieces, literary ones or musical. Now the perception of people towards art has changed dramatically so people appreciate it more and even are willing to get themselves in one or the other form of it. I don’t claim myself to be a very creative type however I have always been a keen observer and an aesthete.

Usually I don’t get enough time to get to the art exhibitions owing to my long working hours. The last one I visited was, I guess, 5-6 years ago when I was in the last year of my graduation. In order to appear for a competitive examination, I visited Shimla. I was accompanied by my best friend Vikas and I must admit it was an invigorating trip. After the exam was over, we had ample time to spend so we travelled ahead to the Mall Road Shimla where it was drizzling. 

Fortunately, there was an art exhibition and a theatrical performance organised in the municipal corporation building that day. We went in and had a wonderful time observing the masterpieces of Chaman Thakur, a national award winner painter from Himachal. It was a treat for our eyes as he has captured the mesmerising, picturesque landscapes in a captivating way. A lot of people were gathered there owing to the free entry which I think that was the best way to lure people to get engaged with the art and appreciate it. It took an hour to look at all the paintings on display and we were truly inspired by all his art pieces.

On a concluding node, I must say that art has the power to motivate people and offer new experiences, sometimes even insights related to spirituality.

  • Do people have different opinions about art? Why?

Ans : Yes absolutely, although some consider it a waste of time and are not intrigued to engage themselves in it, others find the art pieces appealing, full of insights and enlightening experiences. I presume that is probably because those who are not creative, are not aware of its power and purpose.
