Venkatappa Art Gallery

The Venkatappa Art Gallery is a government initiative to promote art amongst the city's people. The gallery is named after K. Venkatappa, the illustrious painter known for his magical landscapes of picturesque southern towns like Ooty, Kodaikanal and others. The entrance to this gallery is from the Government Museum, and the rather scenic walk down to the gallery is over a bridge with pretty pink lotuses in a pond. The paintings are on display on the first floor of the gallery and photography is not permitted here. The artists featured are mostly local, and the temporary exhibitions keep changing every 3 weeks. Most artworks exhibited include watercolor, charcoal and oil paintings.

Gallery Time and Space

The red tiled roof the Gallery Time and Space at Lavelle Road speaks of an indelible mark of the old world, in this modern city. The gallery, located next to an old English Bungalow complete with an aesthetic garden, is a pleasant sight to see. The theme, that is evident in its very name, comes out even more strongly by the juxtaposition of the art it displays and space it stands on. What started out as an ode to Contemporary Indian art now stands as one of the richest culture hubs in Bengaluru. The gallery not only holds art exhibitions but it also functions as a venue for many book readings, film screenings, discussions on art sessions etc. Artists featured here include names such as Amitabh Sengupta, Aparna Caur, F.N Souza, Ravindra Salve etc. The gallery includes works of paintings, sculptures, and photography, a window into the world of experimental art. A visit here is indeed a cultural enrichment.

National Gallery of Modern Art

It's pure poetic justice that the National Gallery of Modern Art is set in a piece of art itself, the Manikyavelu Mansion which was home to the royalty in Mysore once upon a time. As mammoth as it is regal, the palace, which is now converted into the museum, holds some of the most prized and unique pieces of contemporary art in the country. It also includes a cafeteria and an open-air theater.
