The Jehangir art gallery is the most popular art gallery in Mumbai and it was a great experience to look at the art
Since 1952, this gallery in South Mumbai has been a meeting point of national and international contemporary artists as well as students and art admirers. It has four exhibition halls and it hosts more than 300 shows in a year. It is also the venue for the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival.
Next I moved to Jahangir Art Gallery. I am not a painter but I like the art of expression and I appreciate it. While looking at the paintings, there were paintings of natural landscapes, like the sunrise, the forts, the temples. All this while, I was very much able to relate with it, as soon as I saw sunrise, I was like I saw this in Varanasi, as soon as I saw deodar trees, I was like I saw this in Mussorrie, temples, I saw it in Rameswaram and there were scenaries from Badami as well, I have been there as well, I was so much able to relate with it! It took me back to all the places I travelled in just 10 minutes, wow! Then I moved to photography section by Milind Sathe, someone who lives in Hills and Mountains and exploring their lives day by day. I have been to Spiti, I was able to relate with many of the photographs and now , I know where all to go next :) Thanks Milind.
On weekends, you can see many artists crawling on the streets to capture the beauty of ancient Gothic architecture of South Mumbai which makes us feel more artistic. Jehangir Art Gallery to local artists open air galleries – which reflect various colors of Mumbai.
Art at its best. A good display of art by famous artists to budding artists. It’s heartening to see Art still alive with a charming old gallery, welcoming each and every one who fancy art/ photography exhibitions etc.
