Glimpse of Beauty, An Old Boat and Early Morning Shades are just a few feature paintings that will be on display by Prashanti Laxmi at NewPark Mall’s Cultural Corner during April’s exhibit.
Laxmi’s paintings are based on her photography. She practices plein air painting, landscape painting and figure drawing. Born in India, the artist incorporates a little flavor of that culture in her paintings.
On April 12, there will be a closing reception for Laxmi. During the reception, Laxmi will announce the winners of a Kid's Art Competition and an Adult Art Competition. The art contests are open to all school kids and adults. Entry deadline is March 28 and the entry fee for adults is $25 for the first entry (each additional entry $10). Kid’s entries are free. Judging will be held on April 3rd. Three cash prizes will be awarded with the top winner receiving $250 . Selected art pieces will be on display at the Cultural Corner from April 4 – 12. For complete information on the contests, deadlines and prizes, please visit, https://www.prashantiart.com/Prospectus.pdf
Laxmi will be raffling-off one of her paintings during the reception. Tickets costs $5 each and proceeds will benefit the organization Art of Living, a non-profit, educational and humanitarian organization founded in 1981 by the world-renown philanthropist and spiritual leader Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (www.artofliving.org).
Cultural Corner is located on the Lower level near Sears.
