Art Therapy Revolution: Celebrating Women Artists Through Printmaking

Summary: Gallery Cosmos is hosting "Art Therapy through Printmaking" at the "Inspire Her Wellness" festival, celebrating International Women's Day 2024. The event will feature live printmaking sessions, workshops, and the showcasing of artworks by 20 promising young female artists.


Art has always been a powerful medium for expressing emotions and promoting healing. Through the unique segment "Art Therapy through Printmaking" at the "Inspire Her Wellness" festival, Gallery Cosmos is taking this concept to new heights. The event, set to take place on March 8-9 at the Baridhara Society Lakeside Park in Dhaka, aims to celebrate the transformative power of creative expression in healing through art.

Empowering Women Through Art

The event will feature a live printmaking session and workshop conducted by the esteemed printmaking artist, Professor Rokeya Sultana. Additionally, young artist Surovi Akter will be showcasing her talent by drawing caricatures live at the event. The workshop and printmaking sessions are scheduled for Friday, March 8 at 11:30 am and Saturday, March 9 at 11 am.

The Gallery Cosmos Pavilion will also be highlighting the works of 20 promising young female artists and printmakers, showcasing a total of 35 artworks. This initiative is part of Gallery Cosmos' ongoing commitment to promoting and supporting emerging talent in Bangladesh's art scene.

Shattering Glass Ceilings in the Art World

Women have always played a crucial role in the art world, yet their representation has not always been proportionate to their talent. This event aims to shine a spotlight on women artists who are not just filling gallery spaces but are breaking barriers, challenging societal norms, and offering diverse perspectives through their art.

Female artists like Nahar Khan, the Executive Director of Gallery Cosmos and the Cosmos Foundation, are leading the charge in the art world. Nahar Khan is not only a curator and writer but also a patron of the arts, working towards inclusive curatorial practices and curatorial activism to spark meaningful conversations around social, racial, and political issues.

A Platform for Emerging Talent

Gallery Cosmos, under the leadership of Nahar Khan, has gained international recognition for its artistic endeavors. From hosting virtual exhibitions to working with differently-abled children in the art space, Gallery Cosmos is dedicated to fostering the rich art and culture of Bangladesh.

The "Inspire Her Wellness" festival, set to kick off with an opening ceremony by Shazia Omar, co-founder of Dhaka Flow, promises to be a celebration of art, wellness, and empowerment. With a wide range of workshops and classes lined up, the festival aims to inspire and uplift women from all walks of life.

In partnership with UNB, Gallery Cosmos is set to make a lasting impact on the art scene in Bangladesh by providing a platform for young female artists to showcase their talent and gain recognition on a global scale. The "Art Therapy through Printmaking" segment is not just an event; it's a testament to the power of art in healing and empowering women to tell their stories through creative expression.
