AAG : All About Girls
This year, International Women's Day falls on Thursday the 8th of March. So for the Wednesday event at the Gallery Cafe we thought we'd do something dedicated to all the girls in our lives.
Imagine an evening when some ladies do whatever they feel like doing - singing, reading a story, reciting poetry whatever...and the men/guys only sing, read stories, recite poetry in praise of the females.
It would be lovely if you could find the time (5 - 15 minutes) to do your thing. The singers amongst you can sing songs in praise of women. The poets can recite poems that celebrate womanhood. Dramatised readings about women too are welcome. The ladies of course who want to participate can choose to do whatever they want to do...it's their evening after all.
All in all, let's make it an evening with a difference.
Vive la Femme.Location: The Gallery CafeFree EntryDate: 7, March '18Time: 19:30 PM - 21:30 PM

Myriad Expressions a solo show by Maruthi Paila
Abstract art provides scope to play with lines and colours. It's personal and subjective and Maruthi Paila explores those possibilities of expression in myriad ways. Moving away from figurative imagery, Maruthi dwells in the non-representational world for his maiden solo show. The acrylics and small format works are geometric, with criss-cross lines forming haphazard, asymmetrical patterns perhaps resulting from an outpour of the artist's emotions. It's like a mosaic of lines and colours. Yet, there is a sense of harmony in the composition. Devoid of specific shapes and forms technically, abstract art can still have some perceptible formations. Rather, it allows the viewer to figure out and deduce 'shapes'. So, even in the course of abstraction, Maruthi has provided some visual clues to the viewer'. Some of his works have a 'stained glass' look with a misty 'cloud-like' effect created on them. In the small paper works one can glean some kind of formations and the artist has managed to create an eerie effect in a few of them. In the larger works one can surmise that in between the columns of smoke or mist are bits of coloured windows akin to stained glass windows. The colours used in the works range from bright to dark and dense. In some the lines may look entangled, free, knotty or in a maze. Maruthi has been seeking to find a language of his own working and exploring different types of imagery, figurative and non-figurative - a continuous exercise to develop his visual vocabulary for growth and perfection. Leonard Brooks said "Abstract artâ€¦is part of the constant change and vital searching that energizes every true art." Maruthi's quest in a sense has been a soul-stirring one where he has touched the depths and highs of emotions.Location: The Gallery CafeFree EntryDate: 1, March '18Time: 11:30 AM - 22:30 PM
