Recent works by artists Ramchandra Kharatmal, Varsha Kharatmal and Satyajeet Varekar will be displayed as part of the exhibition titled, Myriad Colors

Myriad Colors is an exhibition of paintings by artist couple Ramchandra and Varsha Kharatmal, and Satyajeet Varekar. Show-curator Varsha Munot says, “Varekar has depicted Nandi (the ‘vahan’ or vehicle of Hindu deity, Shiva) and shepherds that are depictions of Indian culture and tradition,” says Munot, adding, “These are the artist’s childhood impressions.” Varekar, who lectures at an art college in Sangli, has had several solo and group shows to his credit. About the award-winning artist’s series of Nandi artworks, Munot says, “Each painting has a story to tell.”
