For three days, from 22 to 24 December 2018, the three local artists K.P. Deepa, Praseetha Biju and E.C. Sadanand, gathered in the Uravu Bamboo Grove Resort.
From early morning until there was no longer enough light to see their paintbrushes, they worked, interacted, shared and studied their different styles. Members of the public were welcome to come and observe the artists during the creation process. At the end of the camp, the artworks were exhibited in the resort and are still exhibited in the reception area today. We had the opportunity to film and interview the artists during the art camp.
From 18 to 20 May 2019, 14 local artists participated in an Art Camp in the Uravu Bamboo Grove Resort in Thrikkaipetta, Wayanad.
This event officially launched the formation of the new collective that aims to support local artists in the region: the Wayanad Art Cloud. The Art Camp was open to the public, to visit, see the artists at work and interact with them.
At the end of the Art Camp, on 20 May 2019 at 3:30 pm, an exhibition open to public took place in the Uravu Bamboo Grove Resort.
The artworks were afterwards exhibited for a week in the Uravu Eco Links office in Thrikkaipetta. People interested in art could admire the creations of the Art Camp and buy artworks.
From 21 to 28 November 2020, the Kerala Lalitha Kala Akademi Art Gallery in Calicut re-opened its doors after eight months of lockdown. The exhibition showcased around 30 artworks of WAC artist Rameesh M.R. who is known for his unique style of work mixing line drawing and painting in equal measure and giving an insight into the Adivasi culture.
The event was opened on Saturday 21 November by artist K. Sudheesh Kumar and concluded on 28 November. It was a great success for a first exhibition after lockdown. The Wayanad Art Cloud is very proud to have one of its members doing the re-opening of the gallery.
