Srijana College of Fine Arts’ BFA Show is back this year after a two-year pandemic-induced hiatus. BFA Show is the college’s flagship art show, where the institution’s final-year students get to exhibit their artworks.
This year’s BFA Show is being held at Nepal Art Council, Babarmahal, Kathmandu, from November 6 to 11.
The show was inaugurated by Deepak Raj Joshi, director general of the Confederation of Nepalese Industries (CNI) and founding executive member of the World Tourism Network.
"Interested final-year students submit their projects to the college’s selection committee, which evaluates and screens every project," says Sharad Ranjit, department head of painting at Sirjana College of Fine Arts. "Only projects that the committee selects are exhibited at BFA Show, which stakeholders from various industries attend. The show is a big opportunity for our students to showcase their work. In the past, many students have gotten work opportunities through BFA Show."
BFA Show 2022 features the artworks of 21 students, and the works are divided into painting, graphic communication, traditional Nepali sculpture, and traditional Nepali painting. The artworks address themes like social awareness, abstract art, and branding, among others.
"We couldn’t host BFA Show for the last two years because of the pandemic," says Bijaya Maharjan, department head of graphic communication at Sirjana College of Fine Arts. "We are glad to have resumed our BFA Show from this year and to be able to give our students this valuable platform."
