Gurgaon’s biggest art festival this month

Times of India, 3rd September 2012

GURGAON: Previously, the organizers of ‘Art Mart’ have called it Gurgaon’s biggest art festival. And this year, when the annual event is inaugurated afresh, we are assured that it will all be ‘bigger than before.’ This would be the fourth season of Art Mart — a common forum for artists, collectors and buyers. And the three-day event this year, too, is packed with art exhibitions, and a few cultural performances.

“With Art Mart IV, we will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of Indian Cinema. This would be our central theme this year,” said a representative of Epicentre, Gurgaon, the venue for Art Mart.

Beginning September 21, the festival is expecting a healthy turnout of aficionados and enthusiasts this year, too. “We have had some 8,000 to 9,000 people every year. And the number has gone steadily up. This year we are definitely expecting more than 9,000 footfalls,” the representative added.

True to the main theme, a special selection of artworks focused on Indian and Western cinema will also be showcased at the venue. “We also have a wide variety of activities planned for the three days. These include discussions, workshops, art appreciation courses, painting competitions and much more.”

Organized by the hospitality company, Old World Hospitality, the art festival is also aimed at providing a popular platform to budding talent. “This year’s event will feature some exciting new art works created by a group of young emerging stars from across the country, who were nominated by well-known established artists.”
