Art and nature
As a part of the Pune Tree Fest held recently,a workshop had been organised on October 1 at the One Life Club in Pashan. Called ‘Express Nature’,this workshop in clay was arranged by a group of artists to celebrate the trees of Pune. It was a way of expressing gratitude and affection towards the trees. Works by Madhavi Kolte,Ritika Zharotia,Gauri Gandhi and Late Yogesh Desai were on display. Gandhi put up an installation about trees and animals; Zharotia displayed her sketches; Swati Desai showcased nature photographs clicked by her late husband; and Kolte added to the creativity with her sculptures.
