This year this was my second visit to Kumartuli during my stay of 2 weeks at Kolkata. Kumartuli is colorful and eventful almost always. There is a saying that goes like “we Hindus have 13 festivals to enjoy in 12 months”; and almost all of them need a separate kind of Idols and accessories. And Kumartuli is the one stop shop for all that.
I’ve posted both BW and color version of this image. Let me know which one you like better.

First and Only Artists Run Art Fair Scheduled to Open at Wyndham Garden Inn, NYC during Armory Art Weekend
New York, NY – February 13, 2012
Theorize New York: Impossible to Understand, 2012 Black March Edition is the first and only artists run intimate art fair in NYC that will open its doors at Wyndham Garden Inn, Chelsea during Armory Art Week from March 8 through March 12, 2012.
Theorize New York: Impossible to Understand was conceptualized and organized by three artists, Eric Ginsburg, David Pollack and Marina Reiter, as a response to the corporate greed model of the “Blue Chip” gallery and art fair system. Theorize New York is an art fair for collectors and artists run by artists.
“We are very excited to be able to bring this new art fair concept to the artist community,” said David Pollack of Theorize New York. “Theorize gives artists the opportunity to present their work to collectors and galleries directly and engage in an open dialogue. It’s all about giving the artists exposure, a chance to be seen and heard.”
Theorize New York: Impossible to Understand, 2012 Black March Edition Contemporary Art Fair will run March 8-11, 2012 at the Wyndham Garden Inn Chelsea located at 37 West 24th Street, New York City, New York 10010. The art fair will be open daily 12pm -10pm with the Grand Opening scheduled for Thursday, March 8th (5pm Exhibition opens; 6pm -10pm Opening Party).

On December 2, 2011, the International Truth-Compassion-Forbearance Art Exhibition opened at the Alex Gallery, the largest gallery in downtown Washington, DC. The opening of the exhibition drew many viewers, some of whom shared their impressions.
Painting: Pure Call
The International Truth-Compassion-Forbearance Art Exhibition draws many viewers
Anastasia Bride, manager of the gallery
Anastasia Bride, the facility manager, has been working at this gallery for dozens of years. She said, “This exhibition is shocking. Viewers stay much longer than for other exhibitions. They ask, 'Why does such a persecution occur? What have they done?' This exhibition spurs people's interest in learning about China.”
Susanna Thornton, a photographer and filmmaker
Susanna Thornton, a photographer and filmmaker, said she liked the painting 'Homeless' the best, because it shows a girl keeping her belief under stressful conditions. She said it reminded her of Langston Hughes's poem “Hold Fast to Your Dreams.”
Rosa Dejesus (right), a medical school student from Puerto Rico
Rosa Dejesus, a medical school student from Puerto Rico, was visiting her boyfriend in DC. She said the paintings moved her, especially “Come Back, Daddy.” Without having seen the painting, she would not have learned about what is occurring in China. As a medical school student, she thought it was inconceivable that doctors were involved in harvesting organs from living Falun Gong practitioners.
Graduate student Beth Leonhardt
Graduate student Beth Leonhardt said, “When I walked in, I was drawn by the shocking paintings. These paintings are beautiful and inspiring. They are shocking and encourage viewers to learn more.”
Robert Donato, an engineer
Robert Donato, an engineer, said, “It is an eye-opening experience. I did not know the issues in China, such as persecution, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion. The principle of truth and compassion is good for everyone.”
There are more than 40 paintings in the exhibition, which will run from December 2 through the 30. The gallery is located at 2106 R Street, NW, Washington, DC.

“…Alone with your story…”
“…Tout seul, avec ton histoire...”
“...Tu solo, con la tua storia...”
“...'Jij alleen met jouw verhaal'...”
“...Μπορείτε μόνο, με την ιστορία σας...”
...A solas con tu historia
y el sangrante silencio estival de la tarde,
tus dedos desplegaban
el otoño amarillo de las hojas de un álbum
de cerúleos retratos y antiguas soledades,
expresiones y gestos de un ayer detenido
en pálidas sonrisas o adustos ademanes
de gentes de tu casa cuyo nombre ignorabas,
y tenían, sin embargo
por encima del tiempo,
un hálito suspenso o un familiar latido
la sombra de tus ojos, tu indolente nostalgia,
el fantasma apagado de una flor o un olvido...
(CARLOS CLEMENTSON. Los Argonautas.)
