Varadakshina for GrandMark
A tribute to Kerala Artist Vasudevan Namboothiri, highlighting his life and works, will be organised on Friday August 14, at David Hall, Fort Kochi. The event is essentially a tribute to the 90 year old senior artist. A few upcoming fashion designers will showcase their creations involving Artist Namboothiri’s sketches on traditional Kerala ecru fabric. Additionally there will be an exhibition cum sale of prints of his paintings. The event will be the launch of Grandmark, a trademark to easily identify products created by senior citizens. Varadakshina is being planned both as a tribute to a great artist of 90 years (Grandmarked!) as well as a fund raiser for starting off Grandmarked products.
A group of artists led by V.K. Jayan of Terracraft will be painting diyas at 2 p.m. for the main event at 5 p.m. Tripunithara Krishnadas will accompany Artist Namboodiri with Edakka and Sopanasangeetham while he sketches his new work. Designers’ Collective, a group of well-known artists and designers from across Kerala, will present their work ‘Varadakshina Edition’. To know more, contact Good Karma Foundation on 98950 40899.
