"Rhythm" acrylic painting by Manisha Vedpathak

Finally my countdown has started. I am ready 
to touch another milestone. My first solo exhibition
in India will be starting from Oct 24 till Nov 1,2015.
I was pretty busy with all the preparations. Invitation
cards, flyers, catalog will be printed by tomorrow.
I am exhibiting all the paintings on African theme,
which will be a sort retrospective of all the paintings
done in Ghana. There are a few paintings that I haven't
posted. Below is one of them. Similar subject as in 
"Tribal dance" ,which got sold in Czech Republic solo 

Acrylic on canvas, 29.9"x 29.9"
Dance is a highly predominant aspect of Ghanaian culture.
Traditionally, most ethnic groups in Ghana have their own
dance styles unique to their culture. All these dance forms 
involve mainly movements of hands and either an exaggerated
or slight shuffle of the feet. Traditional dances are usually
clad in the traditional cloth. Dance being a major part of Ghanaian 
social life, almost all events involve some form of dancing.
Through music and dance they re-affirm their cultural beliefs and 
tribal identity.
