This small gallery located at Khar in western suburbs of Mumbai India, has interesting exhibitions and events happening all the time. We show promising upcoming artists' paintings - a new exhibition every fortnight; and lots of paintings in store. We cater to realistic budgets. Keep coming back for our latest posts.
Gallery Pradarshak in association with
Good Homes magazine played host to a live painting workshop in the shady
restful outdoors of the gallery on Nov2, 2012, at its premier address in Khar
Conducted as part of the Good Homes
week-long Public Art Initiative, the live painting session was targeted at
bringing the common man in touch with his artistic inner self. Twelve common
folk were invited via a registration process and were provided with canvases
and art material; courtesy Good Homes magazine.
Artists begin to work
Established artist Ramesh Deshmane, who
is also currently exhibiting at gallery Pradarshak, was in charge of monitoring
the participating art enthusiasts by guiding each one on the kind of paint, brushes, kinds of strokes, finishes, etc,
are appropriate for the individual’s work of art. He also helped them with the
finishing touches and guided them with enhancing treatments appropriate to
their works of art.
Drawing a profound analogy from this simple activity, we see how diverse
approaches can be, to life; how various viewpoints could emerge to culminate
into something beautiful and meaningful.
Paintings in progress
Blank canvases – each of size 2 ft. x 3 ft. were mounted on easels –
some vertically oriented, others horizontally; the same amount of materials and
tools were given to each participant and they were urged to let go
uninhibitedly, the artist within them. There was no time limit. It was an
exercise in pure joy and sharing, aimed at having a good time, collating some
good memories to cherish in one beautiful afternoon in this journey called
A variety of works emerged: landscapes, one realistic and the other
abstract; figurative works with Ganesha, mother and child, celestial and
emotional themes; something classically alien, pure non-representational art,
symbolism and even religiously precision-driven tantric art.
The highlight of the afternoon was an impromptu participation by a young
architectural student who joined in the celebratory mood and created two works
of art on paper.
With the participants fully involved, bubbling with enthusiasm and the
drive to create something individualistic, the afternoon was a tremendous
mingling of creative thought and camaraderie amidst some hot samosas, peppy juice and of course,
Mumbai’s quintessential cutting chai.
Finished Works of Art
The works were on exhibit for public viewing at Ebony Gautier,
Infinity Mall, Malad on the 4thof
