Art Appreciation Course and on the spot Painting Competition at epicentre

Epicentre brings another season of the biggest art event of Gurgaon, ART MART 4. Artists from various cities will come together under one roof to display and sell their artworks. The underlying theme of the event is ‘Art and Cinema’, celebrating 100 years of Indian cinema.

Online PR News – 03-September-2012 – Gurgaon – From 21st-23rd September, the event will celebrate Indian art in all forms and colours. The 3-day art extravaganza is a meeting ground for all- artists, gallerists, collectors, art connoisseurs, the general public and the media. Providing the independent artists an opportunity to exhibit, the multi dimensional Art Mart is a platform for a wide gamut of associated activities - discussions, workshops, press meets, art appreciation course, painting competition for children, portrait painting and much more.

Talking about the artworks, they represent the full spectrum of creativity and are reasonably priced. The aim is to make art affordable and accessible.

An interesting feature also is the workshops on art for adults and children. The idea is to educate about the mystifying world of art.


Art Appreciation is not as tough as it sounds. While, Art Appreciation simply means being able to look at works and form a definite opinion, the techniques and arty terms must be known. That is why an introductory workshop on 23rd Sep, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm will prove helpful.

Beginning with a brief history of art and aesthetics, Indian and Western, the workshop will help decode contemporary Indian art by taking the participants through various phases of its development until now. There will be illustrated lectures on classical art, the progressive artists group, contemporary scene, focusing on new trends and some well-known artists’ work. Also discussion sessions on how to look at art, what and how of choose and collect, and take care of one’s collection. The full day workshop directed by Sushma K Bahl will feature interactive sessions led by a faculty of leading experts. Find full schedule on the website. Follow the link:
