Winter will usher in art season in city

Ahmedabad is getting ready for its tryst with art. Like every year, this
year too art galleries and curators in the city are all set to commence
their work for the art shows to be conducted during winter.

For instance, MD of Frangipani, Harssh Shah, is bringing artist,
Hindol Brahmbhatt to town. He says, “Although we haven’t yet
decided the timeline for this show, it would be sometime in the
month of January or February. The show is themed on achievers
across the globe, which will include the likes of Steve Jobs and
Bill Gates. We are still thinking about the name of the show. However,
Brahmbhatt has already started his work and I am coordinating with him.”

A MS University, Vadodara graduate, Brahmbhatt’s technique includes
painting with an image in photographic mode and then adding acrylic,
shellac, clay, sand and other things to create different textures.

Art promoter and gallery in-charge of Archer Art Gallery, Manan Relia
has a couple of shows lined up in November, and one show after that.
“On November 15, we are organising two shows, one in Amdavad ni
Gufa and the second in L&P Hutheesing Gallery. These are solo shows
of artists, Bhairavi Modi and Masoom Khambhayata.”

Archer will also organise another show following the above, where Anil
Relia’s personal collection of ‘Govardhan Lalji’ will be showcased. Relia
says, “This unique collection includes a sketch of Lalji done in various
mediums. Besides, we are also participating in a few art fairs or I should
say exhibitions across India.”

Also organising shows during the three months of cold weather is
Marvel Art gallery. Its MD, Chaitya D Shah says, “Our work will commence
from November where our gallery will be part of the India Art Collective,
an online fair. In December, we are conducting a solo art show of Bhanu Shah,
city-based artist. Then in January we are part of India art fair in New Delhi
and will also conduct our Ratan Parimoo travel show at Vadodara.”
