Aptara Sponsors Employee Art Exhibition in Pune, India

FALLS CHURCH, VA--(Marketwire - December 30, 2008) - Aptara, Inc. today announced corporate sponsorship of an Annual Art Exhibit on January 3, 2009 to showcase employees' creative talents. The employees are members of Aptara's Media Technology and eLearning Division.

The Aptara Art Show has been arranged to highlight the creative talents of a group of graphic artists and designers who work at the company. Many of these artists paint professionally and have exhibited at art shows across India, while others paint purely for their own enjoyment and to have another channel for their creative expression.

Over 35 artists have contributed to the exhibition, each with their own style and method. "While we work on digital art professionally at Aptara, some of us also enjoy expressing our creativity through media such as oil, acrylics, pencils, water colors, crayons and mixed media," commented Shubhada Phadke, Head of Aptara's Graphical and Instructional Design division and one of the show's organizers.

"We are truly honored to have the opportunity to showcase the talents of these gifted members of the Aptara team," said Dev Ganesan, president and chief executive officer of Aptara. "We hope as many people as possible have a chance to see the beauty and variety of the paintings on display and get as much enjoyment from them as we have," he added.

The show highlights a variety of styles and subject matter. Paintings range from realistic and semi-realistic landscapes, portraits, conceptual paintings, to modern art and human figure studies, miniature mythological drawings and still life pieces. Each is unique and beautiful and there is truly something to be enjoyed for every taste.

Details of the show are as follows:
