Making art inclusive for all at Artjuna’s Art Showcase

Artjuna began as a dream for Moshe and his wife Anastasia. The vision of having a special place to set up a workshop and exhibit their unique hand-made apparel has turned out to be a favourite for those who appreciate art. Beginning today, ‘Art Showcase’ will feature upcoming artists for a month-long exploration of sharing their stories. NT BUZZ reports

Starting today until February 28, top emerging contemporary artists are coming together from all over the globe to Goa for a month long pop-up Art Exhibition at Artjuna. The exclusive artworks will be exhibited in the picturesque garden café. All forms of art including digital, watercolour, oil on canvas, graphic art, photography and many more, will be on display.

Telling us more, Moshe says, “Artists will be exhibiting their work at our garden café, while also giving the art-loving audience an opportunity to buy art directly from the fine artists, and to invest in many pieces of art that will be on show at the exhibition. Our main intention is to give upcoming artists, painters, photographers, etc a platform to showcase their art and reach the right audience and build their network in the art industry.”

The grand opening for the showcase will be held between 7p.m. and 10 p.m. Kamran Azim, Tusha Sawant, Ronny Frost, etc, are a few who will be presenting their work, along with 30 other talented artists from around the globe.

There will also be a number of workshops and art classes taking place through the month, such as the ink painting workshop (a type of East Asian brush painting that uses black ink as used in East Asian calligraphy in different concentrations). Actor, comedian and artist Samaya Gorgona will also host a movie screening of 10 unique films in February.

Moshe and his wife created a space where they could display other art designers, conduct workshops, classes, as well as sit, talk and enjoy with friends and customers. Speaking about the need to make art inclusive Moshe says that there is a need to bridge the gap between artists and the general public. “It can be an intimidating and exclusive affair. Fine art may be accessible to the public through museums and galleries, but it remains exclusive to those who can afford it and most of all, to those who can appreciate and understand it,” and this he says needs to change.

He believes that art has a real role to play in all our lives and that no one can and should dictate what and how an artist creates. “Artists must have the freedom to express what they need to express in whatever form or manner they choose. Incorporating art in daily living can also go a long way in promoting appreciation for art,” Moshe concludes.

 

(The art showcase will be opened today at 7 p.m. and will carry on till February 28, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.)
