The exhibition features 25 works of art by 21 artists and these works will be part of the IAFA collection. The artists were also honored for their works during the exhibition.
Arvinder Chamak, secretary general of IAFA, said sculptures have always remained the oldest art form popular among artists. “We have had outstanding talents in this kind of art in the city and we encourage young talents through regular workshops. Sculpture has changed in form and medium over time, but its popularity remains the same.
