Art is slowly being a good companion to people. Art rather than just being a form of expression it has become a reason for people to travel and get fresh ideas as well.
Visual artist Neera Joshi too is traveling with her paintings and is currently at Nagoya, Japan. She took part in three events that happened during her stay.
She first visited Traditional Fine art Exhibition at Shanghai Art Collection Museum which started from June 5 and ended on June 26. This was the ninth edition of the international exhibition.
Then she visited 19th Global Artist Movement 2019 Nagoya, Japan which was a solo exhibition at the Blue Box Gallery held from June 20 to June 30.
That was followed by her next visit the fresco of "Godesses of Mecry "(peace and compassion") created by her father RN Joshi in 1987 at Toyohira, Komogotaki Mountain, North Hiroshima. This was the greatest moment to remind both people of Nepal and Japan the forgotten place at Toyohira.
The forgotten place at the height of 300m in the beautiful mountainous hill was remembered by Neera after 30 years with the residents of the village at Toyohira, Mr Takemura Masayuki. The doyen of Nepali Art Late Joshi visited North Japan in 1987 during the invitation of Shudo University, he also had created a Mandala which is housed now at the Hasumi Village museum as per a press statement given by Neera Joshi.
