The Purushottam Public Trust Events and Publications
At Purushottam Public Trust, we strongly believe that the accessibility of art is a gauge of freedom in a society. The Trust therefore seeks to encourage artistic exploration and endeavour through its primary initiatives. To this effect, we undertake and organize activities that help inform, educate, inspire both young artists and the public at large.
Working to support and promote high quality education and endeavors in the field of printmaking, the Trust has an annual calendar of events guided by our aims and objectives as an organization. With Purushottam Public Trust itself being seeded in an event, our emphasis remains on offering platforms and opportunities to artists, as well as creating mutually nurturing interfaces between artists and the public, through our events. These also offer a chance at pushing the boundaries of artistic endeavour through high quality
education of artists in technical and nontechnical aspects of the discipline of Print Making.
Bringing together a rich pool of knowledge, experience and insight, these events are curated in collaboration with eminent artists, like minded organizations and bodies, and prominent galleries and institutions. Our events largely take form as exhibitions and shows, lectures, seminars and workshops, including exhibitions and shows for promising students and young artists, such as under the aegis of the Purushottam Annual Merit Award. Through these we hope to contribute to the discipline of Printmaking and the opportunities at hand.
If you would like to contribute or collaborate with us in our efforts, kindly contact us directly to discuss the possibilities further.
The Annual Purushottam Public Trust Exhibition
In keeping with its core objective of promoting high quality education and endeavours in the field of Printmaking, Purushottam Public Trust presents an online exhibition of works by Ms. Jayati Kaushik - recipient of the Annual Merit award 2019.
The exhibition shall be available for viewing in the online gallery from the 5th of September to the 04th of October, 2020.
These works speak about the moments of day-to-day lives of individuals around such as a stroll in the park, a couple holding hands, lovebirds chirping on a tree, parents as they are, lovers as the go, just in their natural behavior, walking up the stairs, laughing, talking, and living. These depictions are without drama and without exaggeration. It is about human relationships, emotions, and behavior with the nature around and with themselves. She has also represented these difficult times of this world suffering as one due to Covid19, portraying that the sudden implementation of new human-made rules is actually boosting nature to prevail.
