Two-day art camp on PM Hasina begins at BSA
To mark the 75th birthday of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, a special two-day art camp was inaugurated at the National Art Gallery plaza of Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy (BSA) Wednesday.
Seventy-five renowned female painters and artists of the country have joined the art camp titled "Sheikh Hasina: Bishwajoyi Nondito Neta.''
Portraying the eventful and historic life of Sheikh Hasina, eminent artists and art scholars – including Kanak Chanpa Chakma, Farida Zaman, Rokeya Sultana, Naima Haque, Ivy Zaman, Farzana Ahmed Shanta, and Syed Mahbuba Karim Mini – are participating in the camp.
Addressing the initiative, BSA Director-General Liaquat Ali Lucky, said all the artworks will be showcased at an upcoming exhibition at the Number 1 gallery of BSA's National Art Gallery, which will be inaugurated on the prime minister's 75th birthday on September 28.
In association with the Ministry of Cultural Affairs, BSA arranged a similar exhibition last year titled "Unnoyoner Kobi, Manobotar Maa."
