ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 3rd Feb, 2023 ) :'Day Shall Dawn', a Painting and Photography exhibition was opened for public here on Friday at the National Art Gallery of Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) to commemorate Kashmir Solidarity Day.

"This particular exhibition is an amalgamation of portrayal of brotherhood by Pakistani artists for their fellow men. This exhibition consists of works entirely inspired by the freedom struggle of the people of Kashmir, and the courage and dignity with which they have carried on their fight for their rights in face of a ruthless organized force unleashed on them.
"This exhibition consists of powerful works which symbolize the urge of the Kashmiris to be free and their determination to go on fighting until their final victory," said the organizers.
"Artists being sensitive souls have used their skill to convey the tragedy in occupied Kashmir. The painful scenes in the paintings successfully convey the valiant struggle and agony of the courageous Kashmiri men and women.
"Painters and artists can contribute towards human rights beautifully and aesthetically through their art. They can influence the international community of artists to exert pressure on their respective governments to adopt measures that protect human rights and take note of the violations happening in the world around us", they said.
