Gallery Veda showcases the best of local sculptures at the show, Form and Function
While paintings dominate the citya��s artscape, bringing some heft into the picture is Gallery Vedaa��s new show, Form and Function. Showcasing sculptures curated by owner Preeti Garg, the collection features mostly local sculptors. a�?Wea��ve been wanting to do this show for a while, as wea��ve had lots of enquiries,a�? she says, adding that the focus is on affordable art. a�?As we are on OMR, we mostly get expats, architects and those looking for pieces for their office space. So most of the pieces (exclusively made for the show) are small,a�? she adds.
Ashwathi Mohan, the gallery manager, says that there is a huge variety on offer. a�?We have wall-mountable sculptures, stand alones and ones you can put on a pedestala��in mediums like wood, metal, ceramic and wire,a�? she says.
The sculptors are a mix, tooa��with first-timers and the experienced participating. For many like Raviram Ramakrishna, a deaf-dumb sculptor whose work is popular in Bangalore and Delhi, this is an opportunity to attract local clients. a�?With this show he can showcase his skill here,a�? says his father P V Ramakrishna.
At the gallery, from today till September. Details: 9840499429
