Kathmandu Metropolitan Round Table 4 (KMRT 4) is hosting a fundraising art exhibition at the Windhorse Gallery, Lalitpur from March 13 to April 3.
The art fundraiser is being headlined by the world-renowned artist Tsherin Sherpa and is adorned by the work of various upcoming local artists including Tulku Jamyang, Manish Lal Shrestha, Kapil Mani Dixit, Bharat Rai, Tashi Sangpo, Dawa Thulong, Sodhon, Dorje Karmarong, Diki Yuthok, and NB Gurung.
“As these artists take their path of intrinsic creative redemption, Round Table Nepal has come to aid in the process through their communal approach,” a press statement issued by KMRT reads. With the funds raised, Round Table Nepal aims at engaging in community service, with their major focus on building a greenhouse project at Cunina School in Sekha, providing physiotherapy equipment for Muscular Dystrophy Foundation Nepal, and supporting children’s education and school infrastructure.
