An Art Exhibition was held in Café Hideout on Boring Road, Patna on the 9th of June. The name of the exhibition was titled “The Last Leaf” that symbolises the hope of reincarnation.
“We named it The Last Leaf because the last leaf is the leaf of hope, survival and beginning of a new life”. – Amyrah Khan, Organizing Head.
The event was supposed to start at 4 pm but people started joining the exhibition from early as 12 pm. The exhibition was organized by the organization “la Pintura’’ headed Ankita Raj , which means ‘The Painting‘. This event was organized to give a platform to many young artists to showcase their art. Ankita said that soon they are planning to organize an art carnival in Patna. Her painting ‘Dead and alive’ and ‘Lakshmi Bhawan’ was a good attraction for every visitor. Lakshmi Bhawan was the painting of a building of Sabjibagh. Her painting,‘Innocence of Kaali’ aimed to highlight the innocent aspect of goddess Durga which otherwise considered as a mythological character with an aggressive attitude.

Exhibitions are held to give an impetus to art and other works.
An Art Exhibition includes a festoon of various artefacts from countless forms of creativity such as paintings, drawings, crafts, sculptures, etc. Art is never created in a vacuum. It is important to understand the historical, cultural and social circumstances behind the creation and creator.
Happy and cheerful faces were there with young and creative minds. The Ambience was good enough to create the aura of art and artists on the terrace where the event was organized. We expect to witness more such exhibitions in our city on different themes.
