The works highlight the cultural heritage and Golden Temple in various shades and canvas. Mohinderjit Singh, chairman, governing council, IAFA, inaugurated the exhibition in presence of artist fraternity and guests. “The exhibition is dedicated to the rich history of the holy city . These paintings not only represent the core of Amritsar and its legacy, but also are a result of a different thought process where in these artists have attempted to address the maladies of the mind through usage of certain form and colours. I hope the people encourage them and experience art in so many shades.”
