The Art in Ahmedabad has over the last five years gradually evolved
and the interest and awareness about the field is steadily on the
ascent. The city has a number of talented eminent and upcoming artists
who are dedicated to their work, and slowly but surely, making a mark.

One of My Sculptures at the exhibition 

with my work – sculptures in copper and stainless steel. There’s a piece on the wall where i’ve used mirrors and S.S 
With the chief guest Shri Jay Narayan Vyas – Health and Tourism minister at the inauguration also in the picture : Siddheshwar Kanuga, Mr Anil Relia, Visha Kanuga of the Smart Art Hub who organised the exhibition  and Rakesh Patel.

 
 Riddhi and me are both from Studio Verve.
 Riddhi is a Sculptor and works in metal and stone. 
Women and Art : when i think of these two words together i think of Frida Kahlo, Camille Claudel…
 I think of so many significant Indian women artists and their contribution to Art. From Anjolie Ela Memon to Bharti Kher women artists definitely are making their presence felt but by and large the no of women in the field is small as compared to men. A show highlighting their work therefore is welcome.
An Article featuring the exhibition – City Bhaskar. 

The promotion for the show was done on quite a large scale with 9 hoardings and various banners across the city. A large no. of people visited the show. 
I am Indeed glad to be a part of this exhibition and thank all those who attended.

varanasi is a place to visit and revisit:
visiting the city is a totally different experience, the ghats and typical “chai stalls” becomes a perfect spot for artists or writers to hangout, look for quiet time or good conversation among like minded people. this place is referred to as “the city of temples”, “the holy city of India”, “the religious capital of India”, “the city of lights”, and “the city of learning. the city has 4 very popular universities : Banaras Hindu UniversityMahatma Gandhi Kashi VidyapeethCentral Institute of Higher Tibetan Studies and Sampurnanand Sanskrit University
varanasi or banaras is an old, traditionally rich city. American writer Mark Twain wrote: “Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together.”
