VASA- Visual Arts of South Asia Festival comes back with an extremely successful in-person visual arts exhibition this year, spanning over two weeks
Now in its sixth year, VASA Arts Festival puts together a curated art exhibition, Colours of South Asia, giving amateur, emerging and professional artists a platform to showcase their artistic talents. Besides the art exhibition, the festival includes free workshops by participating artists and a community art project.
After the last couple of years of successful virtual programming during the pandemic, VASA once again held its 14 days long in-person art exhibition with a new theme – TRANSFORMATION. We invited artists to share their art that explores positive social & cultural influences and experiences they have had during the pandemic. Experiences, reflection and transformation that they went through in their daily lives or transformation in their artistic process.
We received a huge response to our artist call from local and regional artists. There were over 30 participating artists. The exhibition had diverse media – paintings, photography, sculptures, ceramics with themes varying from wildlife animals, striking self-portraits, unique folk paintings, intricately painted still life, architecture, subtle hues in nature and colourful landscapes.
The festival culminated in a two-day community project based on the theme – TRANSFORMATION during the Vibrant Brampton events.
