For its third show, KalaRasa Art House in Jayanagar 4th Block has done something unique. It has put up 78 works by 14 artists, all of whom are speech and hearing impaired. The exhibition has its beginnings in a request it received from Foundation for Art and Culture for Deaf for some display space.

Says Suguna Sundaram, KalaRasa's manager (operations), who also curated the show Silent Hues, "Bharat (founder KalalRasa) is a bit of a philanthropist at heart, so when FACD approached us it was natural for him to create the opportunity for the artists. For me, it turned out  to be a wonderful learning experience. The energy and spirit of the artists are to be seen to be believed. I had anticipated angst in the works, but instead I found so much vibrancy. They would be so engrossed in their animated talks that I used to feel left out."

The show opened with much fanfare on October 19 and has already sold five paintings. Silent Hues is on till October 25.
