India Art & Gems Fair 2016, India’s premier festival for art and jewellery was inaugurated last evening in Bangalore. The fair has brought together works of 100 artists, galleries, art collectors, art enthusiasts, the best in Indian and 15 niche jewelers whose creative works are artworks themselves. The IAGF 2016 is being held at the three levels of the prestigious The Leela Palace Bangalore, The Collonnade, which is today the city’s hotspot for Fashion, Luxury and Fine Art.
Says Meena Das Narayan – Founder & Director of IAGF and Curator, “We are happy to present the second edition of IAGF which is a mélange of Fine Art and Jewellery. Bangalore does not have a dedicated festival for Fine Art and we hope IAGF will address just that. The event this year will be much bigger and vibrant with so many artists working together using varied techniques and jewelers who are renowned for being different, participating to make it a success.”
The week-long art festival this year will also feature a series of events including a children’s art contest, art workshops for adults, speaker sessions, live art, jewellery show, dance entertainment etc.
