'Sanchalana' to demand govt art gallery in City

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Chavadi President Ganesh Somayaji said the artists in Dakshina Kannada were demanding for a government art gallery for the last 25 years. “Recently, we had urged the former Deputy Commissioner Subodh Yadav to consider our long pending demand and he had responded positively to our demand. The district which had been a hub for many art forms, does not have a kala bhavan or an art gallery,” he said.

Many districts, including Bangalore, Mysore, Belgaum, Gulbarga and Dharwad have art galleries, Somayaji added.

With the district administration proposing to build a Rangamandira at Bondel, the chawadi has asked for space for an art gallery on the same premises.
The artists have asked for about 2,000 sq ft for a display hall.

“The government art gallery wherein an artist will have to pay minimum rent for the exhibition will help him to showcase his talent. This will help artists from poor background to exhibit their piece of art as well,” he added.

The expo will be inaugurated by Deputy Commissioner Dr N S Channappa Gowda while DK district Kannada Sahithya Parishat President Pradeep Kumar Kalkura will preside.
Daijiworld.com Chief Editor Walter Nandalike and Alva’s College Fine Arts department Dean Prof Ramdas Adyanthaya will be the chief guests.

As many as 33 artists will exhibit their paintings. The participating artists are K Shenoy, Vishnu Shevagoor, Ganesh Somayaji, Permude Mohankumar, Sayyed Asif Ali, Sharath Holla, Ananth Padmanabha, Rajendra Kedige, Anil Devadiga, Santhosh Andrade, Taranath Kairangala, Dinesh Holla, Harish Kodialbail, Jeevan A S, Sathish Rao, Veena Srinivas, Sudha Nagesh Nayak, Sapna Noronha, Reshna Shetty, Harish Marne, G Kandan, Zuber Kudla, Thyagaraj M, Pranesh K S, Jeevan Kumar, Wilson Kayyar, Ramachandra Kamath, Pramodraj, Vishwas M, Sudheer Kavoor, Muralidhar AChar, Asha Shetty and Renuka.
