'Kara' is a representation of new artworks and achievements of Shah's artistic life with the installation of her one-of-a-kind series, Abhiscka - The Chank - a reflection of her spiritual and emotional connection with the conch; Aum Collection - a depiction of her creativity stemmed out of meditation; and Vintage Buddha Collection - portrayal of her journey into painting created as a shield against sorrow and negative energy. The highlight of the exhibition is a signature painting showcasing Hon'ble PM Modi's message for 'New India' in line with the slogan - Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan, and Jai Anusandhan.The exhibition is open between 11:00 AM to 8:00 PM on all the four days.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri. Parshottam Rupala, Union Minister of State for Panchayati Raj, Agriculture and Farmers Welfare said, "I am delighted to be a part of an event that holds works of abstraction set down by Krupa Shah. I am particularly pleased to see the signature painting dedicated to PM Modi's vision of 'New India.' Much can be learned from Krupa since she has the rare artistic gift of being able to illustrate the beauty of our surroundings that is often overlooked by us in our everyday lives. Her art accomplishes this by bringing nature, divinity, and imagination to centre-stage, ultimately pulling-off a difficult task."

The abstract art exhibition also displays a collection of artworks devised by the orphans of Swanath Foundation - a voluntary organization working for children who are in need of care and protection. Through a platform like 'Kara', Krupa Shah aims to provide opportunities to young aspiring artists. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the paintings of these orphans will go to Swanath Foundation for their holistic development.

Commenting on the event, artist Krupa Shah said, "I am delighted to be hosting Kara to represent 'New India' in a painting that reflects Hon'ble PM Modi's vision to empower Kisan, Jawan, Vigyan, and Anusandhan. It also gives me immense pleasure to guide and offer a platform that serves as an opportunity to the kids of Swanath Foundation to present their strengths and skills through art. 'Kara' is a chance to look into paintings ranging from abstractionism to realism, and everything in between.
