Eminent architect Rabiul Husain attended the opening ceremony as the chief guest, while veteran artist Professor Hamiduzzaman Khan attended the event as the special guest.
Most of the displayed works are abstract and combine various colours. Calligraphy dominates many of the displayed canvases, and the presence of bright colour in those artworks catches the attention of the visitors. On the other hand, tapestry artworks also draws the art lovers' attention.
Artist Taijul Islam spent 14 years with Rashid Chowdhury — known as a pioneer in tapestry art in Bangladesh — in his studio, honing the craft of creating compelling and beautiful tapestries.

Tajul’s canvases or screens are full of colourful forms and black and white, red, yellow, blue and green patches, that express various concepts and perceptions of aesthetic human realization.
