“The emotions are sometimes so strong that I work without knowing it. The strokes come like speech.” – Vincent van Gogh
Art is a form of expression that has the power to display raw emotions in the most refined way. It is a peak to a person’s soul and where an entire story is told without a single word being said. This has been prevalent not now but since an ancient time where kings got their portraits made to exude power and now it is used as personalized presents or something scenic to hang in the living room. During this time bridge, the importance of art has not once flickered to anything lower.
Starting with my personal favourite, Glow Arts Gallery, Hyderabad
This gallery was started in the year 1985 by Sri Amrutha Das first in Secunderabad and recently in Jubilee Hills. The gallery started its operation with sober art forms like pencil sketching and landscape painting to elaborate and intricate art like glow in the dark paintings, canvas paintings, Tanjore paintings, replica paintings, thread paintings and also customized portrait paintings. The material used by the gallery has always been of premium quality and customer satisfaction invariably ranks high in the priority making the gallery a place mandatory to visit.
The other art galleries for any art lover across India are:
This gallery was established in 1888, it is one of the oldest art galleries in India. It is a non-profit art institute which houses three art galleries, an amphitheatre, a library and an art shop. It is an art gallery for contemporary art devotees and looks to bridge the gap between art creation and appreciation.
It was inaugurated on the 29th of March, 1954 in the presence of the Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. It has been working towards preserving modern art and organising exhibitions not only in its premises but across the country. The National Gallery of Modern Art ensures quality and to set and maintain standards of excellence.
It has created a space for luminaries, mid-career and imagine artists since 2004. They wish to create interesting dialogues between the old and the new, the modern and the contemporary, the contemporary and the conceptual.
It was founded in 1997 and stands tall promoting paintings, sculptures, photography, cartoon art and ceramics. They strongly endorse the digitalisation of art and hence have many installations.
It is a corporate office building which combines an art gallery, exhibition, cafe and corporate offices to create a unique everyday experience. It is like the meeting of various worlds in one building.
Supporting artists and giving their work the required appreciation is necessary. This was just a small way of doing so. These were some of the best art galleries across India in my opinion. However, these are just a few and India is extremely rich and diverse in its art.
