Gallery Cosmos in Malibagh, Dhaka organised a three-day watercolour workshop titled “Welcoming Borsha”.
Renowned Art historian Sundaram Tagore inaugurated the workshop on June 24. Artist Biren Shome was present as special guest at the inauguration.
Veteran watercolourist Alokesh Ghosh conducted the workshop, and materials were provided by Gallery Cosmos.
About 14 promising artists took part in the workshop. Participating painters were the students of Faculty of Fine Arts (University of Dhaka), University of Development Alternative in Dhanmondi and Jatiya Kabi Kazi Nazrul Islam University in Trisal, Mymensingh.
Participating artists were Ratnesshor Shutrodhor, Sultan Istiak, Manik Bonik, Ariful Islam, Shahnoor Mamun, Tapan Kumar Pal, Didarul Hossain, Mahmudur Rahman, Arifur Rahaman, Warior Sami, Fahmi Khan, Sinthia Arefin, Khing Sai and Sourav Chowdhury.
Artist Afrozaa Jamil Konka took part as guest artist in the workshop.
The workshop was held at different outdoor locations in Dhaka like Dhanmondi Lake, Boshila (near Rayer Bazar), Amin Bazar Bridge and others.
About the workshop, Alokesh Ghosh said, “The popularity of watercolours is on the wane. The workshop aims to popularise the watercolour medium among promising painters in Dhaka art circuit. Watercolour is one of the lucid and technique based mediums that superbly articulate nature and landscape. But the medium is very complicated and few watercolour exhibitions are held in the city, and budding artists do not have sufficient knowledge of this medium. This medium can effectively depict nature and seasons of Bangladesh.”
The workshop ended on June 26.
