Judge rules Republican Tenney won last open US House race

first_imgALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A New York judge ruled Friday that Republican Claudia Tenney defeated U.S. Rep. Anthony Brindisi by 109 votes in the nation’s last undecided congressional race. The ruling by Judge Scott DelConte could clear the way for Tenney to be sworn in as the representative for central New York’s 22nd Congressional District, barring emergency intervention by a state appeals court. DelConte’s ruling came after he spent three months reviewing ballot challenges and trying to fix a myriad of problems with vote tabulation. He rejected an argument by Brindisi’s lawyers that certification of the election results be delayed until an appeals court had a chance to review the case.last_img read more

Jskanwals journey of printmaking

first_imgAn exhibition of prints has been organised at Triveni Kala Sangam, New Delhi from May 15 – 24, 2019. Aptly titled ‘Introspection’, the current exhibition of printmaker Jskanwal bears evidence of the three decades spent by her, in the practice of printmaking.These formative years of her art training, which has led a rare finesse in her art, bears credit to her years of training under the famed and independent minded printmaker Jagmohan Chopra, who had set the pace of printmaking on an indigenous footing. An alumni of the Government College of Art, Chandigarh, Jaskanwal’s current exhibition is a landmark solo show of her career and contains a cache of fifty selected works.

The tones in the colours of her art, are a true definition of the word ‘muted’. With a dominance of earth-brown, dusky yellow and a grey-blue tinge, arranged in solid formations that resemble a rock solid contour, the forms overlap and merge, yet remain distinct and explicit, without being overbearing. The many layers of the tones, coupled with the graphic format, become a way of expressing her emotions, according to the art maker. A nature lover and keen observer of life around in her natural surroundings, Jaskanwal has depicted her thoughts and observances on nature into her art in a truly unique way. Each colour depicts a form, a familiar recall from nature, that triggers an emotional journey in our minds. A printmaker with a difference, she does not use conventional methods to create her works, either.last_img read more
