A proverb in English says, “Time and Tide wait for none.” It does not matter if you believe in these words or not, it does not leave any impact on the truthfulness of the saying. Both time and tide pass by on their spree, and they leave an indelible mark on the life of human beings. Being a mere human being, you have no control over these things at all. Nature is all-powerful and it shows its power from time to time.
At present, the world suffers due to the outbreak of a pandemic COVID-19. With an outrageous impact on the entire world, the pandemic has created havoc on the lives of everyone. With infection crossing a massive number of 65 million people, and death of around 3 million, the impact is severe. With the ongoing lockdown for more than 3 months now, people have lost their employment, and that is certainly a matter of concern.
Keeping this in mind, Emami Arts has come up with an initiative to help the artists who are unable to fund their needs in this time of emergency. The online art exhibition ‘Extend A Hand,’ is an initiative that aims at standing by the artists in need to survive
The Organization Of ‘Extend A Hand’
‘Extend A Hand’ is an initiative by Emami Art, one of the popular contemporary art galleries in Kolkata, in association with Kolkata Center Of Creativity (KCC). The organizers are planning to gather funds for the artists by selling their paintings both online and offline. They are sure about gathering some help for the artists so that they can manage their needs during the lockdown period due to Covid-19. This is not all! The organizers also aim at finding some help for those who have suffered severely due to the pandemic. The fund is likely to be shared between the artists and the rehabilitating communities that are badly hit by Covid-19.
What Would ‘Extend A Hand’ Feature?
As per the information received from the organizers’ desk, the event is likely to showcase around 120 artworks of 36 emerging, contemporary, and well-established artists. The showcased work would include paintings, installations, and sculptures from the 36 artists from all over.
