• February 2018 Newsletter
    After a month-long conversation on the Building Bridges online blog, the 13 artists participating in the
    project have created original works for the exhibitions travelling to Kolkata, New Delhi and Bangalore.
    If, like most of us, you weren't able to go to India for the shows, you can see here the online gallery of
    their works...
    The exhibitions in Kolkata and
    New Delhi have been received with great
    enthusiasm by both the young art communities
    and art professors and critics in the two cities.
    Our gratitude to Ushmita Sahu, the passionate
    artist and curator who conceived the idea and splendidly brought it to fruition!



    'Urban Sketching as a shared experience',
    by Vivien Ahrens

    A growing global community of artists that sketch on location, showing “the world one drawing at a time”.
    Next stop, Bangalore! The third and final
    Building Bridges show will open in Bangalore
    on 3 / 17 at the Gallery Sumukha. It will mark
    the conclusion of the amazing project that has
    seen a long journey of exchange, encounters
    and friendships between 13 young artists who
    had never met before.
