The highly anticipated India Art Festival is set to return to the nation’s capital from April 7, after a nearly two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The annual art fair, now in its sixth edition, will feature 3,500 works of art presented by more than 20 galleries from across the country. Traditionally held at the Thyagaraj Sports Complex, the festival will be held this year at the Constitution Club.
According to organisers, the four-day event will see a captivating collection of art and sculpture by modern, contemporary and traditional Indian artists, connecting galleries, dealers and buyers with artists, decorators and interior, architects and art connoisseurs.
“…All 80 stands were sold out in the first three weeks when we announced the Delhi edition in October 2021! All stands were sold out in November 2021. This overwhelming response from artists and galleries shows us that the anticipation for this year’s edition is immensely high, and we look forward to showcasing this exceptional panorama of the Indian art scene, through the ages,” said festival director Rajendra Patil.
The festival will feature works by at least 350 masters and established artists including MF Hussain, SH Raza, Sohan Quadri, Manjit Bawa, Jamini Roy, Abha Sharma, Atul Gendle, Debabrata Basu, Jalpa Patel and Disha Gandhi.
As well as 30 booths showcasing paintings and sculptures, the event will have two booths dedicated solely to individual sculptor artists – with over 150 sculptures on display.
Some of the participating galleries include Gallery Splash, Art Nouveau, Gallery Pioneer, Vision Arts, Easel Stories, Studio3, Rhythm Art, Nalini Creations, Nifa Fine Art Academy, M Narayan Studio, Sudha Art Creations and Rabi Art Gallery.
The gala will end on April 10.
