Art represents what it sees around it. Arsgroup – a group of Artistes, Art teachers and art students of Ludhiana is holding an exhibition "Art For Justice" to commemorate International Women's Day at Gallery Artmosphere, Ferozepur Road, Ludhiana. This exhibition which was inaugurated by Mrs. Nilambari Jagdale, (IPS), A.D.C.P City-1, Ludhiana today has paintings, digital art, drawings and collages of more than 50 artistes of Ludhiana and will remain open till the 12th of March, 2013. All the paintings depict the anguish that everyone is feeling after the Delhi Rape Case and other incidences of violence against women. They are using the medium of art to express their sorrow and anger and hope to awaken the soul of every citizen of this city.

According to the inspiration behind the group, Mr. Parveen Kumar, Lecturer, Govt College for Women, Ludhiana – "We artists are very sensitive people and feel the trauma and torture of what is happening to the females of our society manifold. We have taken this method of protest for expressing our sorrow at the degradation of morals around us. We hope these visuals and paintings will help create more awareness about the need to actively change our mindsets so that such incidents never happen again".

Mr. Jaspreet Singh, Principal, Govt. School, Hassanpur, said that "Most of the artwork displayed is of college students who are young girls and easily identify with the harassment that women face at every step in our society. Their creations are really awe inspiring and heart touching. They are sure that each person who visits the exhibition will surely realise the magnitude of their angst and vow to stop this victimisation."

American Artist Martin Victor who is displaying a digital painting in the exhibition said that "Crimes against Women are a global phenomenon and need to be addressed as a top priority since the better half of our population seems to have become the battered half and it was high time we changed that".

Manu from Amritsar, Mrs. Harpreet Kaur, Mrs. Meenu Mahajan, Mr. Jaswinder Singh Mehdipur, Rajni Daaby, Mr. Jagdeep, Madhuri, Ramanjot, Ayushi Gupta, Jasleen, Bhawna, Mrs. Manpreet Gulati, Ramandeep Kaur, Paramjot Walia are some of the artists taking part in the exhibition.

The Chief Guest Mrs. Nilambari Jagdale appreciated the urge of all the artists to express themselves so beautifully. She congratulated all the artists and their teacher guides saying that "It is a novel attempt in Ludhiana to display art work based on Women Special Theme on International Women's Day."
