SRINAGAR: Governor N N Vohra inaugurated the “9th Annual Contemporary Art Show-Concourse” here on Sunday evening in Srinagar.
This 8-day mega exhibition in which 60 Kashmiri artists from all over the world have come together for first time in 66 years has been curated by eminent artists Veer Mushi and Syed Mujtaba Rizvi. Minister for Culture Naeem Akhtar was present on the occasion.
Welcoming the artists to the Valley, Governor congratulated Munshi and Rizvi for organising this exhibition which is particularly significant as it seeks to revive artistic traditions of the Valley after a gap of several decades.
Governor recalled that during the earlier years, during his visits to the Valley he had the opportunity of meeting many eminent artists, sculptors and painters, locals and outsiders who were frequently visiting Kashmir to seek inspiration from its people and enchanting scenic beauty. (AGENCIES)
