Artists of the show - Sukanya and Rajith to my right, and Sankar and Geetika to my left. In the centre is me (usha shanthararam) :).




We were blessed with a continuous stream of visitors to our show during all the 10 days. Many of the visitors would spend more than an hour at the gallery, viewing each and every artwork to their heart's content.

Many of them clicked away with their cell phones or cameras even as we looked on disapprovingly. :)

TV Media at 'The Drawing Room Musings' group art show

The TV media have been so kind, and aired about our show in many popular channels in Bengaluru.  All of us were very excited whenever a TV channel visited our show to take video.  All TV media coverd our show extensively showing all the paintings that were displayed, and also interviewed some of us. 


Our show was covered by JanaSri TV, Udaya TV, KF Channel, ACT City TV etc.  But I was unable to catch all of them on video. 

Here are the clips that Udaya TV and JanaSri TV aired about our 'The Drawing Room Musings' group art show.

The fact that software proffessionals were multi talented, and did not just stick to desk jobs, but had an artistic dimension in them was beautifully presented on Udaya TV.
