DNIS News Network - An art exhibition showcases work by disabled painters from across the country.

Beyond Limits, an art exhibition by artists with disabilities recently had its third season at Arpana Art Gallery, New Delhi. The 10-day festival, inaugurated by actress-cum-activist Nandita Dass was organised by Family of Disabled (FoD). The exhibition opened on October 2 and continued till October 11. It showcased the work of disabled artists from across the country.

Beyond Limits was first organised in 2001 to provide a platform to physically challenged artists to showcase their talent through a national level exhibition. Over the years, art lovers, corporates and multinationals have come forward to appreciate the efforts of the featured artists.

Commenting on the success of exhibition, Rajinder Singh Johar, the founder of FoD, said: "The canvas of Beyond Limits has grown bigger this year as artists now contribute their paintings from different parts of the country, many of them being first-timers."
First-time exhibitors this year included Amit Vardhan, G. Prabhakar, Geetika Makhija, Kanchan Vanvani, Reema Bansal, and Vipul Mittal.
