Latest News Ad: A Unique English Grammar, a most useful language book containing almost all ground rules of English, is available with the writer (mobile: 01779477091).                    Make is followed by bare infinitive in active voice but to-infinitive in passive voice: We made him do it. He was made to do it.                    English Language Tips 2: Write `law-and-order situation`, NOT `law and order situation`, When you write simply `law land order`, there is no need for using hyphen, as there is no need to make it a compound word. In the first instance, law-and-order is made into a compound word to create an adjective to qulify the noun situation. In the second, the phrase law and order is not followed by any such NP and so you need not use such hyphenated compound as adjective.                    English Language Tips 1: Write `adviser to the prime minister`, NOT `adviser of the prime minister`.                    Write `adviser of the government`, NOT `adviser to the government`.

Int’l art exhibition begins in city


A month-long international group art exhibition is underway at Gallery Cosmos in the city, featuring artworks of renowned artists from home and abroad.

French Ambassador in Bangladesh Sophie Aubert, Thai Ambassador Panpimon Suwannapongse and internationally renowned artist Shahabuddin Ahmed jointly inaugurated the `Cosmos International Art Exhibition 2016` Sunday, reports UNB.

Artworks of 28 artists from Bangladesh, Canada, India, Nepal and Pakistan are on display at the event.

Some 40 artworks on different themes are being exhibited at the show that remains open for visitors from 12 noon to 8pm every day till December 26 at the Villa de Anjuman in Mohakhali.

Canadian High Commissioner Benoit-Pierre Laramee, UNB Editor-in-Chief and Cosmos Gallery Chairman Enayetullah Khan, Cosmos Gallery Director Tehmina Enayet, Indian artists Avijit Roy and Neeti Hegde, Bangladeshi artists Kalidas Karmakar and Monirul Islam were among others present at the inaugural ceremony moderated by UNB Director Nahar Khan.

The French ambassador said, "Painting or writing or talking is a way to use freedom of our expression. I wanted to be here in order to say that we must defend freedom of expression. Many are not allowed to talk, write and paint, and even not allowed to live in some places in the world."

Noting that Shahbuddin and Kalidas Karmakar worked in France on occasions, Sophie Aubert stressed the need for peaceful bridges between Canada and Bangladesh.

The exhibition is a good example of what Bangladesh can do, the Canadian envoy said, adding it is interesting as there are lots of varieties of artworks of the artists coming from different backgrounds.

Mentioning that many women artists participated in the exhibition, he said, "Be enabled to express yourselves. This is certainly a way to fight violence against women."

Artist Shahabuddin said though a few negative incidents have tainted Bangladesh’s image to foreigners, the reality is not the same as art in the country is so strong.

About the recent terrorist attack on the Spanish restaurant at Gulshan, he said unfortunately the country experienced a disturbance. "I think Bangladesh will go far, especially in painting."

Tehmina Enayet said she felt honoured to have all the talented international and local artists at the exhibition.

Nine foreign artists are participating in the exhibition. They are Asit Kumar Patnaik, Avijit Roy and Neeti Hegde from India, Asma Mahmood and Shahid Rassam from Canada, GN Qazi, Muhammad Shafiq Rana and Shaista Momin from Pakistan, and Kiran Manandhar from Nepal.
