Group painting exhibition at AFD from Oct 9

A group painting exhibition by the budding child painters of Moonsez Art Academy titled ‘Daak-ticketey Dekhi Amar Desh’ (Looking at My Country Through Stamps) is set to begin from October 9 at the Alliance Francçaise de Dhaka (AFD) in Dhanmondi of the capital.

The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition will be held on Tuesday at 5 pm. Sushanto Kumar Mondal, Director General, Bangladesh Post Office, will be present at the ceremony as chief guest, while visual artist Dr S M Saiful Islam will also attend the event as special guest.

Spanning from the nineteenth century to present, the history of postage stamps is a rich and long one for any persons to enjoy.

Bangladesh saw her first set of stamps in the midst of the liberation war on 29 July 1971 that exhibited the international support for Bangladesh.

The stamps of Bangladesh since then have seen glorious days, from masterfully-drawn commemorative stamps to beautiful and historical first day covers.

As of 2017, Bangladesh Post Office has issued 732 postage stamps and 28 souvenir sheets. All these have been a great incentive for the children of Moonsez Art Academy to create artworks inspired from the stamps of Bangladesh.

The exhibition will remain open to all till October 18 and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3 pm to 9 pm, Friday and Saturday (9 am to 12  noon and 5 pm to 8 pm). Closed on Sunday.
