Fine Arts

The Association has been in the forefront of fine Arts including painting right from its early days. The Association teamed with the Bombay Art Society to organize Art exhibitions by eminent Artists from both Maharashtra and Karnataka, in 1976, 1986 and 1988 at the Association as well as Nehru Centre. After the development of the First Floor hall as an Art Gallery, exhibitions of paintings and photography have become regular feature of the Association’s activity.

Painting competitions for children had been an annual feature for many decades.

In the last decade, the attention had been mainly on organizing one man theatre festivals and workshops, seminars and conferences on music and music related subjects.
Two ‘Horanada Vishwa Kannada Samskrutika Sammelana’ were also organized in the last decade in collaboration with the other local Kannada Sanghas and the Karnatka Govt., which were a huge success and caught the eye of the media.
