Kolkata Lalit Kala Academy is always buzzing with art activities throughout the year, guided by Sidharth Ghosh. I was very fortunate to visit Kolkata at this piont in time to witness their annual art fair, which had exhibits of Terrakota sculptures, Ceramic sculptures, bronze casted sculptures, Graphic prints, Paintings and also few crafted leather pouches by Shukla Bhattacharjee.
Oil paintings by fellow artists who work spare time at the Lalit Kala were exhibited ranging from Rs 2000/- to Rs 15000/-
