Cerawaves kicks off

Cerawaves, an art exhibition by Vasundhara Ballal was inaugurated at Dhyana Mandir in Sharada Vidyalaya on Saturday. Karnataka Bank Chief General Manager P Jayarama Bhat was the chief guest of the function. Speaking on the occasion Bhat said that the skill of an artist lies in creating a world of reality and that Vasundhara has attained it even in this early stage of her career.

Bhat appreciated the perfection in her paintings. President of Nitte Education Trust N Vinaya Hegde presided. Vasundhara Ballal along with the guests performed ‘Guruvandana’ for her guru and proprietor of Prasad Art Gallery Koti Prasad Alva.

Cerawaves is a collection of ceramic paintings, which is quite a novelty in Mangalore art circles. It is a complex process in which ceramic paste is applied on an already completed oil painting and left to dry. It is a painstaking process as each shade has to be done separately and takes a long time to dry. Ballal has been practising the genre for the last 5 years in Prasad Arts School.

Eminent surgeon and Vasundhara’s father-in-law Dr C R Ballal, husband Dr Rajesh Ballal and other members of the family were present on the occasion. The exhibition will be held in Sharada Vidyalaya till June 2 and will be shifted to Prasad Art Gallery from June 3 onwards.
