Affordable Art with a Heart started with a humble 3-day art exhibition in Hyderabad. Meera visualized this as more than just an art exhibition. She intended to create a platform to promote differently abled children and upcoming struggling artists while making charity available to all with a heart for uplifting the less fortunate.
The exhibition featured a vast collection of paintings of different artists and styles, the proceeds of which were donated to the various social well-being initiatives. In addition, students of Ashray Akruti, a school for hearing impaired children will have their paintings showcased.
After the overwhelming response of“Affordable Art with a Heart” in 2017, the Season 2 (11th, 12 & 13th August 2018) is strengthened the cause with a creative vision. The key charities being - Isha Vidhya, Lepcha Kottage Orphanage (Sikkim), Kasturba Gandhi National Memorial Trust (KGNMT) and Ashray Akruti.
Meera takes the initiative to the next level by enabling artists, donors, and buyers to engage online across the country, through the launch of the online e-commerce website - www.artwithaheart.in
Through the portal, all artists or donors can upload and put up their paintings for sale and art lovers with a heart for charity can purchase them across the year to support the cause.
