Welcome to Gowry Art   Upcoming events

Gowry Art Institute is a registered trust dedicated to the promotion of visual arts with a special focus on women artists. India has a long tradition of women artists, right from the folk and tribal artists who used to create designs on the walls of their homes, on their courtyards, on pottery, textiles and other materials of daily use. Art was an unselfconscious part of their day-to-day practice. Women’s art in our time however received a new impetus when the artists in India began to discover their cultural roots and also were exposed to contemporary trends elsewhere in the world. At least from Sunayana Devi of the Bengal School and Amrita Shergil onwards one finds a new awakening in women’s art practices, visible especially in plastic arts, as part of a larger pan-Indian resurrection in art. Several women artists since then , like Saroj Pal Gogi, Anjolie Ela Menon, Padmini, Arpita Singh, Madhavi Parikh, Anju Dodiya,Neelima Sheikh, Arpana Caur, Pushpamala, Rekha Rodwittya, Anitha Dubey, Kanchan Chander, Kavitha Nayar and Sajitha Shankar and several others, have enriched women’s expression in India by exploring the female body and self in manifold ways and by bringing in elements of desire and fantasy, employing realist, impressionist, surrealist and abstract modes in specifically Indian ways.
