It exhibits total thirty two art works in number of different genre applying different methods and techniques varying from gauche on wasli to mix media, oil’s and acrylics on canvases. Every artwork is narrating a story of its own happenings along with strengthening individuals and coming together under the title of ’aik sath satra’ diverting and conveying the message of strength and empowerment from individual aspect to a larger scale, addressing collectively the strength and intellectual empowerment of artistic society.

Over the entire exhibition is a unification of diverse languages sorted and complied under one shade conveying the message of artistic strength and its collective expression.'
