Udupi: Writer A. Ishwarayya said here on Sunday that artists can portray experiences which are indescribable, using lines and colours.

Speaking at “Celebration-09”, a one-day programme which included demonstration of paintings by artists, a painting exhibition by students of Drishya School of Arts, slideshows as well as the felicitation of artist Ramesh Rao on his 60th birthday, here, Mr. Ishwarayya said art had three facets — educative, exhibitive and communicative. Art should become strong through education. Art should have a permanent and lasting value. An artist’s experience was always personal, he added.

Managing Trustee of the Sri Janardhan and Mahakali temples N.B. Vijay Ballal said most artistic activities were confined to Bangalore and Mysore. The Government should establish an art centre at Udupi to facilitate greater creativity.

P.V.N. Achar welcomed the gathering.
