NEETU CHANDRA, PREETI JHANGIANI, PARVIN DABAS & TINA AHUJA INAUGURATE NOTED ARTIST SANJUKTA ARUN’S SHOW IN AID OF CPAA
As she sits by her window, the sea simply waves to her. Cresting on the soothing sound of the waves, Sanjukta Arun’s works captures the myriad moods of Nature on to the blank canvases, bringing to life, the brilliant blooms, the unstoppable waves, the green covers… Sanjukta captures the essence of life emerging from the sea’s love-play with the skyscrapers in her latest exhibition, Sangam, which also happens to be her 45th exhibition across India and the globe.
The inauguration of Sanjukta Arun’s show saw a bevy of celebrities and artists who walked in to cheer the noted artist and the children from CPAA. Actors Neetu Chandra, Preeti Jhangiani, Parvin Dabas and Tina Ahuja, Audiologist-Speech Therapist Devangi Dalal, Anita Peter of CPAA, lensman Pradeep Chandra, artists Padmanabh Bendre, Devyani Parikh, Madhusudan Kumar, Ami Patel and Amisha Mehta among others were spotted at the do. Children from CPAA, between the ages of 8 to 14, were involved in a unique workshop, prior to the inauguration, where Sanjukta Arun was seen guiding the brave-hearts on how to unleash their imagination on canvas through sketch and colours. It was a treat to watch the children at work, against a backdrop of 16 large format works by Sanjukta, created with multiple layers of brush strokes, knife work, stippling work and texture. Interestingly, the proceeds from Sangam will go towards the well-being of children from Cancer Patients Aid Association [CPAA].
