Led by Malika Ghosh Garrett, who had held the dream of holding such an exhibition for a long time, the Colors of India has been garnering much attention within the Indian community. Thanks to her initiative and persistence since 1993, she finally saw her dream come to fruition.
The exhibition is a confluence of fifteen Indian female artists: Rajitta Tippavajhala, Aditi Chakrabarty, Sharmila Ghost Roy, Nisha Gupta, Sarika Jaswani, Malika Ghosh Garrett, Paromita Ghosh, Rina Datta Chakravorty, Neha Patel, Ruma Das, Chaitali Nadkarni, Meenal Patel, Monika Gupta, Jaya Saxena, and Aalia Garrett who showcased their portraits in various mediums, styles, and concepts, besides oil and charcoal on canvas. Donning traditional attire, all artists were present to mingle with guests. More than hundred visitors were present at the forum to catch sight of the art over food and drinks.
