“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”
At the Fine Arts Society of St. Xavier’s College, we focus on the promulgation of Fine and Performing Arts in college, in a subtle and intellectually satisfying manner. One of the oldest societies of the college, it involves and engages students from all departments in organizing several events that aim at a holistic development of one’s creative faculties.
The academic session of 2014-2015 has been one successful year for the society beginning with Sunset Jam sessions in the month of August which inevitably attract a large number of people to the green benches for an afternoon of music, ever since its inception in 2013.
With a conscious attempt to make the X-hibit workshops different this year, the society pooled in its human resources to invite Chandan Sen (Theatre), Jivraj Singh (Music), Mambo City dance crew (Cha-Cha), Debarshi Dutta Gupta and Soumya Bandyopadhyay (Photography) to organize some spectacularly engaging workshops.
Walbrush this year was bigger than ever. Receiving an enormous response for this annual painting and photography exhibition, the venue had to be shifted to the main auditorium to accommodate more art pieces. The theme for photography was Triptych. The judges, Dhiraj Choudhury and Ronny Sen were quite impressed by the entries.
The academic session drew to a close with the most awaited event of the year, Western Music Concert which saw a huge footfall along with some astounding performers from all departments of the college and a guest performance by city band, Ifs and Buts. We take pride in our achievements of the last year and hope to emulate this growth in the subsequent years to come.
