“In their myriad forms, these traditional arts serve as essential documentation of India’s longstanding cultural heritage. Their legacy is not to be ignored. Yet a lack of patronage forces artists to look for alternative means of income, with the result that their work threatens to become a thing of the past,” the organisers said in a statement.

Art for Concern was initiated by Concern India Foundation in 1999 as a fundraising platform and a medium to promote established and upcoming Indian artists. (IANS)
