Last Thursday evening, June 6, we attended an artist’s opening reception for her artwork in San Francisco. The artist is of Indian origin and her name is Rohitha - a friend of ours and a fellow blogger. Three years ago, I posted a comment at her blog (Stuff and Nonsense) that she should do an art exhibition. I mentioned that when she does have her first art exhibition, I will attend (no matter where it was).
At the time of my comment Rohitha was living in Bangalore. In June 2012, I received an e-mail from Rohitha that said she and her husband have moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. After she moved out here we met for lunch and I asked her about her first art exhibition and she responded with “one of these days”.
Last month she contacted me and said her first art exhibition is scheduled to open in San Francisco on June 6. My wife and I were both pleased and very happy for her. We personally know of her talents as she is an excellent artist. I was talking to a guy who knows a thing or two about art. He was pleasantly surprised that an Indian was having an art exhibition in San Francisco. He said that Indians usually exhibit their artwork in London or Singapore but it’s nice that they have branched out to San Francisco.
The ceremony was well attended and there was good food and drinks available for everyone. Rohitha is an expert in Tanjore paintings and
Rohitha’s exhibition is a testimony to her hard work, talent and commitment. I wish her more success and fame. Here a few samples from the art exhibition.
