A celebration of artThe Art Club Nepal is hosting a fund-raising art event to engage in meaningful conversation of art and its impression on society.
The Art Club Nepal is organising an art celebration, ‘The Art Party 2019’ today at Nepal Art Council, Babermahal. The non-profit organisation based in Kathmandu works to promote Nepali art to reach a wider audience in more influential art spaces. The event will host various artists from Nepal and will be a networking opportunity for artists from all circles of life.
“The idea of our art club is to promote works that tell why art is important in our society. In 2012, we also made a sculpture out of the trash that we collected in Everest,” says Prakash Shrestha, one of the organisers. Shrestha believes the event will be an essential get-together for artists and attendees to engage in meaningful conversation about art and its influence on society.
The event is divided into two parts; one is a free entry exhibition that will showcase artworks of more than 25 artists. Some of whom are Sudarshan Bikram Rana, Sunita Rana, Asha Dangol, Erina Tamrakar, Ishan Pariyar, Gopal Kalapremi Shrestha, Sabita Dangol and Saurganga Darshandhari. The second part of the event will be a social gathering among artists and art aficionados, and tickets cost Rs1,000.
The fundraising event will support upcoming art workshops related to nature conservation and creating artworks from the waste collected in the mountainous regions.
