Show, at Radio Club, to be Inaugurated by Shri Uttam Pacharne, Chairman of Lalit Kala Akademi, at 40m on 21/02/2019 followed by lighting of Lamp by Shri Adwaita Charan Gadanayak, Director – General, NGMA
We are doing a First of its kind and unique “Sculpture Exhibition” dedicated only for sculptors, where-in sculptors from all over India and may even from abroad will be having their creations displayed that would attract thousands of visitors. The venue of the exhibition “Radio Club Ground” is an exquisite location surrounded by Arabian Sea on three sides and located at the hub of art fiestas of South Mumbai, where many private art galleries are located. This venue is visible from Gateway of India as well as from Taj hotel, the world-famous landmarks.
We are doing this activity mainly to promote sculptors. It has been observed that very few art galleries entertain sculptors and their art works. This platform in an upmarket and posh locality will provide for an opportunity for affluent buyers in the form of foreign tourists, opulent Art Galleries and random but high-class walk-in crowd visiting the venue because of its stark, absolute and exclusive visibility. The members of the premium Radio Club would be an added advantage.
The setting will give a feel and experience of a Sculpture Park. The participants will be having an opportunity to exhibit their works alongwith renowned sculptors of India Viz. Shri Uttam Pacharne and Shri Adwaita Charan Gadanayak.
There will be an award for best sculpture and the Sculptor will be honoured. Digital certificates will be given to all the participants.
We have volunteers and assistants who will look after the exhibited art works in absence of the artists. We will not be charging any commission on sale during the show. A digital catalogue will also be made. We are charging very nominal just to cover the expenditure. Minimum entry fee is Rs. 6000/- and with this the participant can bring up to 6 sculptures totaling to 6 cubic feet space. Per extra cubic feet will be charged @ Rs.1,000/- additionally. The participants have to pay according to cubic feet space. There is no limit for artists for numbers of works. There will be a Grand Reception Opening with Media coverage. Advertisement of the event will be through various media. Big banners will be installed on the site. There is special offer for large sculptures for single artists and is as per the incremental slab rates (Please see the pricing Excel Sheet for details).
