To add more beauty to your Holi weekend, check out the splash of colour at Gallery G, which is now celebrating its 15th anniversary.
PhotoSparks is a weekly feature from YourStory, with photographs that celebrate the spirit of creativity and innovation. In the earlier 180 posts, we brought you a wide range of creative photographs from an art festival, cartoon gallery. world music festival, telecom expo, millets fair, climate change expo, wildlife conference, startup festival, Diwali rangoli, and jazz festival.
Bengaluru’s Gallery G celebrates its 15th anniversary this month with an exhibition titled, appropriately, ‘Fabulous 15.’ The gallery was founded by Gitanjali Maini, an art curator who was previously an HR executive in Infosys. See my earlier photo-essay on Gallery G, and interview with the founder.
From classics by celebrated pioneers like Raja Ravi Varma and Amrita Shergill to more recent emerging artists, the Lavelle Road gallery has showcased a wide range of creative works. The cozy reading section has a beautiful collection of art books, and the gallery this month features the work of 15 artists.
The artist lineup includes Bose Krishnamachari, Buwa Shete, Ganapati Hegde, Hansha Milan, Mohammed Osman, Nitin Nangar, Partha Shree, Poonam Agarwal, Pradip Das, Raghava KK, Raja Raghavan, Ramchandra Kharatmal, Suresh Gulage and Upendranath TR.
