Art lovers on Friday gathered at the Edge Gallery at Gulshan-2 for "Women in the Arts”, a fundraising exhibition featuring artworks of 22 leading women artists in Bangladesh.

The event was organised by Dhaka American Women's Club (DAWC), with support from Edge Foundation and the Swiss Embassy, said a press release. 

All proceeds will go to programmes working with young women artists and children's arts.

The keynote speakers included US Ambassador Marcia Bernicat, Swiss Ambassador René Holenstein, DAWC President Taheerah Haq, Minaal Chowdhury from Edge Foundation, and Priyobhashini's daughter Fuleshwary Priyanandini.
