Event Diary – 29th January, 2012

‘Kala Pola’ (Open Air Art Festival), Colombo

The annual event, called ‘Kala Pola’ (Open Air Art Festival), is organised in memory of painter-poet George Keyt, who was perhaps, Sri Lanka’s most celebrated painter. According to the George Keyt Foundation, “the Kala Pola initiated by the Foundation in mid 1992 has now settled into a very popular and much sought after annual expectation.”
Hundreds of young painters and sculptors artists from across the country get a chance to exhibit their works in the city, and, possibly get propelled into the higher orbits.
