Brushstrokes of Legacy”: Maharashtra Cultural Centre Unveils ‘Pune Gallery of Visual Arts

In a celebration of Pune’s rich artistic legacy, the Maharashtra Cultural Centre is set to inaugurate the ‘Pune Gallery of Visual Arts’ on March 3, 2024, at 11 am. This unique endeavor aims to bring together the diverse and profound visual art forms that have flourished in Pune, from the times of the Peshwas to the contemporary era.

The inauguration ceremony will be graced by distinguished artist Sudhir Patwardhan, with esteemed artists Jayant Joshi and Sudhakar Chavhan serving as the chief guests. The gallery, housed at the Maharashtra Cultural Center (MCC) Hub within the Jyotsna Bhole Sabhagruha and Shreeram Lagoo Rang Avakash, seeks to create a dedicated space for appreciating the artistic masterpieces that Pune has fostered.

Pramod Kale, Coordinator of Pune Gallery for Visual Arts, expressed, “Pune has a rich heritage of Visual Art, however, there is no dedicated place for connoisseurs to visit and appreciate this art form created by art stalwarts. This was the thought behind setting up a permanent art gallery at MCC Hub which will house Visual Art by legendary artists of today and yesteryears.”

Rajesh Deshmukh, Secretary of the Maharashtra Cultural Centre, highlighted the institution’s commitment to promoting various art forms. He mentioned, “For the display at Pune Gallery For Visual Art, we invited artists to submit one creation each to our gallery, and we received an overwhelming response from all of them. We are trying to get copies of artwork of deceased artists whose original artwork is now not available.”

The Pune Gallery of Visual Arts promises to be a treasure trove of creativity, featuring paintings, sketches, photographs, and sculptures by renowned artists such as Sudhir Patwardhan, Suhas Bahulkar, Bhaskar Hande, Jayant Joshi, Satish Paknikar, Milind Dhere, Sandesh Bhandare, Sudhakar Chavan, and many more emerging talents.
