The Abode of the Ascetic
Exhibition of Paintings and Demonstration by Vasudeo Kamath
The ascetic in an artist is always in the quest of finding his spiritual abode.
Vasudeo Kamath perchance seeks his nirvana in the lap of the peaks of the Himalayas.
Traversing across the verdant valleys of Ranikhet-Almora to the pristine heights of Gomukh and Kedarnath, Vasudeo's canvas stretches the limits of mind, bringing to life the majestic landscapes with soulful renderings of colours and strokes.
Accompanying him on this transcendental journey are friends who are well known contemporary artists in their own right.
Prakash Ghadge's dreamworks in pen and ink, Dr. Gopal Nene's avid watercolours, Kishor Nadavdekar's impressionist style
and Prashant Prabhu's gossiping pandits not only compliment Vasudeo's work but pay a tribute to the artistic quest of the fivesome.

Early views of India
Engravings and Lithographs by European Artists
The engravings and Iithographs at the exhibition are drawn from the
immense reservoir of views of the Indian sub-continent producedby
European artists roughly between the years 1780 to 1870. They are
the works of William Hodges, Thomas Daniell, Balthazard Solvyns and
f others who came to India in the hope of finding patronage among the
British merchants and Army officers and later administrators.
The views of Indian scenery, architecture, people and costumes these
artists produced had a profound impact on the viewers in Europe :
they had never before seen visual representations ofthe picturesque I
sceneiy, the distinctive art & architecture, and thevariety of dress,
occupations and customs of the people of India.
James Rennell, appointed Surveyor General of Bengal, produced a set I
of exquisitely detailed engraved maps of the Eastern parts of the
country published in 1779.
Flowers, birds and animals were observed and recorded in detail by
European botanists and zoologists. In the present exhibition there is a
striking series of birds taken from John Edward Gray's privately
published 'Indian Zoology' dated 1830.
