ART GALLERIES

If artists are the gods of their creation, then the art galleries are the temples. There are a number of art galleries in the city, some of which have been set up by the artists themselves. Within the silent and austere interiors one can commune with various forms of artistic expressions, which is not only a treat to the eye, but also to the mind.

Lakshana Art Gallery

From picture frames to the picture - that's how far this art gallery has travelled. Started on 24th April 2000, the Lakshana Art Gallery is the first such venture initiated by the Lakshana Picture Frames, a Chennai based company.
Two decades of close interaction with art, and founders Madhu and Geetha have moved from merely framing the picture to promoting it. Their purpose is to showcase works of contemporary art, to generate discussion on the subject and to use multi-media to generate greater interest.

Since its inception, the gallery has held three exhibitions, showcasing nearly 60 paintings each time, of many upcoming artists. And they plan to take it further with two to three shows every month!

The cherry on the icing is the most ambitious of their dreams of bringing art back to the mainstream, despite the threat of competion from the other more popular mass media.
Timings: 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Address: 5-9-77, Chapel Road, Abids, Hyderabad-500 001

Surya Gallery
In an era, where artistic expression is stifled by commercialism, the Surya Gallery provides a new lease of life to a number of artists. Surya Gallery The gallery was set up by renowned artist Surya Prakash in 1993, for precisely this purpose, to escape the "trappings of a commercial gallery". This was reflected right in its very first show, when it displayed the works of Manu Parekh, Sunil Das and others who were then unknown to Hyderabad.

Today it houses the contemporary works of artists from all over India. At the same time, one can find the works of Hyderabad's very own Surya Prakash, Vaikuntam, and DLN Reddy. The gallery holds both one-man shows as well as group shows of artists. These collections exhibit styles diverse, both in form and content.

To increase art consciousness Surya Gallery plans to organise Art Workshops and Slide shows. Seven years since its inception, this unpretentious gallery has made an invaluable contribuSurya Gallery Art on displaytion to the art and culture of this city.

Timings: 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Address: 8-3-952/10/9, Panjagutta, Off Srinagar Colony Road, Hyderabad - 500 016
