Artists and sculptors from the city have gathered to show their affection towards the elephant god.

Nine of the artists will showcase paintings while four of them will exhibit their sculptures.

The line-up of artists includes Gauri Gandhi, Vinod Kumar, Vinayaka Rampure, Bhagwan Rampure, GA Dandekar, Dinkar Jadhav, Shrikant Kadam, Siddharth Ghosh, Ramesh Pachpande, Om Rajput, Sachin Kolhatkar, Arpita Kolhatkar and Umakant Kanade.

Dinakar Jadhav, who has displayed four of his paintings in the exhibition, says, “I have tried to display the difference between Ganapati celebrations in today’s era vis-a-vis the yesteryears. I feel that the uniqueness attached to the city’s celebrations has been lost lately and every pandal looks the same. I have also tried to show the commonness of the Lord by portraying him as an ordinary person.”

The exhibition is organised to celebrate the Ganesh festival and showcase the talent of the renowned artists. Sculptors Gauri Gandhi says, “Lord Ganesha is a monsoon baby. So, I have made the sculptures themed around this festival only. It has taken a lot of time to make them.”
