Visits to Hutheesing and Archer Art Galleries
Artscapades organises visits to renowned art galleries to explore art and learn about the nuances that separate a good piece of art from a great one. We discuss the mediums used, the colour combinations, the composition, strokes and techniques. We also exchange views and perspectives about the messages each work conveys at great length. We often come across different meanings the art held for each one of us.
We recently organised two such visits, at Archer Art Gallery and Hutheesing Art Gallery.
At Hutheesing, we visited the exhibition on ‘Code Decode- Where Art Intertwines with Technology”. It was a group show art and installation exhibit by 33 artists in the memory of Indian ceramist and potter professor Jyotsna Bhatt. While the exhibition had fantastic art installations, we also learned that each artwork consists of an embedded QR code.
The visit turned out to be a great learning experience for us, not only in understanding new art forms but also in using technology to expand our website.
At Archer, we explored numerous editions for some of the most popular and in-demand artists of the day, including M. F. Husain, S. H. Raza, Jogen Chowdhury, Manjit Bawa, Manu Parekh, Madhvi Parekh, Thota Vaikuntam, Amit Ambalal, Jyoti Bhatt and many more.
