ISLAMABAD: An exhibition of 30 historical paintings, survived from last year’s vandalism in Ahmedabad, India, will open here at Gallery 6 tomorrow (Wednesday).
The Gallery 6 in collaboration with the International Creative Art Centre of Mumbai, had organised a painting exhibition at Ni Gufa Art Gallery in Ahmedabad in August 2013. 
Sixteen artists displayed their 47 paintings as goodwill ambassadors from Pakistan. However, the exhibition was vandalised by the members of Bajrang Dal having anti-Pakistan emotions.
Talking to APP, an organiser from Gallery 6 said the Pakistani artists showed resilience during their stay in India until December 2013 and managed to bring back 30 paintings survived from the vandalism, some of those with minor damages.
Fourteen paintings were fully damaged, while three had gone missing, he added. As a tribute to those ambassadors of goodwill, the Gallery 6 has arranged the exhibition of their ‘survived’ paintings, he said.
The artists, whose paintings will be put on display are Abid Hasan, Abrar Ahmed, Akram Spaul, Aqeel Solangi, Arjumand Faisel, Hajra Mansur, Irfan Gul Dahri, Mussarrat Nahid Imam, Mudassar Manzoor, Mughees Riaz, Mutaib Shah, Omar Farid, Mansoor Rahi, RM Naeem, Sana Arjumand and Wahab Jaffer.
