Sahayog Contemporary Art Exhibition 2022 Provides Platform for Senior and Young Artists

The opening ceremony of the 6th edition of the Sahayog Contemporary Art Exhibition, showcasing over 100 artworks from 40 veteran and young artists at the iconic Jehangir Art Gallery, Kala Ghoda, was a low-key yet spectacular affair. Besides organiser-artist Satyendra Rane and the participating artists, the evening saw in attendance celebrated artist Prabhakar Kolte, Surendra Jagtap – Principal J K Academy of Art and Design and art curator Ajoykaant Ruia who is also the President of the Indo-Vietnamese Chamber of Commerce. Sahayog Contemporary Art Exhibition is an annual cultural forum that is now in its sixth year. Known to showcase a mind-blowing variety of mesmerising artworks, this year organiser-artist Satyendra Rane has handpicked 40 talented artists from across the country to captivate your mind. Being held at the Jehangir Art Gallery from 11th-17th January, 2022, the art show cuts across media in paintings to bring water colour, oil, acrylic, pencil, Tanjavur, and collage together, and in sculptures to include works in brass, bronze, wood, stone—all under one roof. A portion of the sale proceeds will be donated to Alert Citizen Forum (ACF), a government-recognised Mumbai-based NGO. This year’s exhibit includes participation from veteran and young artists alike. “The art ecosystem,” feels Satyendra Rane, “is geared to favour established artists, and for us at Sahayog, it has always been important to fill this gap by providing a platform that would give unknown faces and talents a chance to shine alongside the known ones. We have a history of bringing forth artists who maybe from different professions but are also inclined towards art.” Sahayog Contemporary Art Exhibition 2022 sees participation from Adyot Rajadhyaksha, Amberhuues Tania, Ameet Pai, Anupama Mandavkar, Arpita Kolhatkar, Arpito Gope, Arvind Kolapkar, Bhagyashri Choudhari, Deepa Hekre, Dr. Shankar Sharma, Ganesh Hire, Ganpat Bhadke, Harshada Tondwalkar, Ishwar Shetty, Joe D’souza, Kariyappa Hanchinamani, Kasim Kanasavi, Komal Gupta, Monica Kharkar, Mukund...
