Joshi has a range of figurative art including Buddha paintings. Talking about it, she says, “It has been difficult for all of us to put up an exhibition together as we are not professionals. Hence, there is no theme for the exhibition. We have tried to explore every medium that we can. To develop our skills we are currently undergoing some training in mixed media.” The exhibition will be inaugurated by cartoonist Mangesh Tendulkar today.

Till July 21, 11 am to 8 pm. at Darpan Art Gallery, Kalaachaya campus, Patrakar nagar, opposite Senapati Bapat Marg. call 9822378245
