Udupi Ramesh Rao, a veteran painter, was the chief guest. He told artists not to forget those who organised such functions with a view to bring them out of seclusion to gain acknowledgement in society and to discover the standards of painted masterpieces shown from time to time.

The artists should nurse mutual courteous ways with a human face. They have to come to broad light and become high quality painters over a period. In the past, such art camps were few and far between, and thus artists lingered in darkness. But at present they have great and more opportunities, to shine in public. They should make use of such moments in befitting, mature way, Rao added.

Guest of honour, Pradeep Kalkura in his speech referred to the important place of painting art in Indian culture as a whole. In olden days, sculpture reigned in temples as a form of art. Today, Chitra-siri has stepped in as a sponsor of arts.

Dr. M. Mohan Alva presided. N. Bhaskara welcomed and G.Somayaji thanked all participants Guruprasad compered Art Camp artists were given certificates.
