Group art exhibition ‘Colours’ at AFD from Friday

A group art exhibition titled ‘Colours’ is set to begin at La Galerie of Alliance Française de Dhaka (AFD) in the capital’s Dhanmondi area on Friday. The inaugural ceremony of the exhibition will be held at 5:30pm on the gallery premises.

Eminent architect and poet Rabiul Hossain will attend the opening ceremony as the chief guest while eminent artist Kanak Chapa Chakma will attend the event as the special guest.

The participating artists in the exhibition are--Farhana Afroz, Farzana Islam, Monidipa Dasgupta, Mukti Bhowmik, Rebeka Sultana, Monira Sultana, Rehana Yesmin, Rifat Jahan and Shaila Akhter.

The artists said about their exhibition, “Spending a significant time of our lives at the same alma mater (Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka) and graduating the same year made us become the best of friends, and also familiar with our artistic expressions. During the later years, after life took us over, we started discussing the journey that we never took. That is when this exhibition, which since has become an annual event, took root. We have been hosting ‘Colours’ annually for the past four years.”

The exhibition will remain open to all August 31 and can be visited according to the following schedule: Monday to Thursday from 3pm to 9pm, Friday and Saturday from 9am to 12noon as well as 5pm to 8pm (closed on Sunday).
