About T K Padmini Memorial Trust
T K Padmini Memorial Trust has been set up to commemorate the memory of T K Padmini, a painter from Kerala who passed away at the young age of 29. Her unflagging courage helped her to face numerous obstacles and leave an indelible mark of her personality on Indian painting. After Amrita Sher Gill, seldom has as strong a feminine presence overwhelmed the Indian artistic sensibility as that of Padmini’s. A remarkable collection of her paintings are exhibited in the galleries of Kerala Lalithakala Academy, Kochi, National Gallery of Modern Art, Madras, Salar Jung Museum, Hyderabad, apart from private collections in India and abroad.
Competition Schedule – Venues
The registrations for the competition are now open and will close on 1st February, 2020.
