'Musicality in Wood' at Gallery Cosmos: Villa de Anjuman

Gallery Cosmos is currently hosting a group exhibition featuring works of  woodblock printmakers titled, Musicality in Wood, at New DOHS, Mohakhali, Dhaka.  Eminent artist Monirul Islam inaugurated the exhibition yesterday as the special guest. The exhibition is based on woodcut prints from the outcome of a printmaking workshop at Cosmos Atelier71 Studio, conducted by artist Anisuzzaman Anis, Professor, Printmaking Department, Faculty of Fine Art, University of Dhaka.

The entire exhibition consists of the woodblock prints produced by 30 talented artists who participated in the workshop. Workshops are a great way for accomplished artists to pass on their skills and explain the processes behind some of their most extraordinary pieces of work. The workshop for Musicality in Wood was no different in this regard, as Anisuzzaman spoke about the finer points of the woodblock technique that he has mastered. Woodblock, or woodcut, is a traditional form of relief printing, where the artist's design or drawing is made on a piece of wood, and the untouched areas are then cut away with gouges, leaving the raised image which is then inked. The exhibition will conclude on March 5.
