We are all aware that most of the artists have suffered a lot during the pandemic period of past two years. Our proposal is to invite these artists and provide them 1st class exhibition space, at a very nominal price. The selection of the artist will be purely on merit basis. We also intend to provide them free stay in a decent hotel, along with all meals during the exhibition days.
We are aware that there are lots of art lovers and connoisseurs to support this type of art event to promote Indian art and artists.
We propose to hold THE ART FAIR during 15th to 18th December, 2022, from Thursday to Sunday (four days) in Ahmedabad, at the ICAC Art Gallery, AMC Grounds, Behind Mondeal Heights, Asawari Tower Road, Ramdevnagar, Ahmedabad – 380015.
In collaboration with a few art connoisseurs, we have planned to hold The Art Fair, with a participation of around 150 visual artists from all over the country to exhibit and showcase their works.
The Fair is 100% run by volunteers. More than 100 community members of all ages create the transformation. Local volunteers work and look forward to this weekend all year long, which is why the person handing you a map as you enter the fair is beaming, and why the folks at the grill are laughing and dancing as they serve up thousands of burgers. Fairgoers tell us the fun and enthusiasm are contagious. Visitors can park along the Fair Ground and also in the reserved parking in the vicinity at designated locations very close by.
