India Art Market presents an Exhibition of Paintings on BENARAS at Art Villa Gallery from 22nd January – 16th February 2020. The exhibition will be inaugurated on 22nd January 2020 at 4 p.m.

The enchanted land of Benaras has summoned visitors from across the world. For the ancient travellers, it was love at first sight, for ages, it has been a nursery, for saints it has been a temple and a prayer house. Being one of the oldest and most sacred sites of the world, Benaras is a living inspiration. The city itself has survived for thousands and thousands of years beside the holy Ganges and has been a melting and meeting point of several religions of the world. The Audio-visual ecstasy of this place has inspired writers, poets, singers and painters for ages and great works have been produced from Benaras which has become immortal.

The Exhibition, curated on BENARAS, captures the essence which cannot be described through words. Works are displayed in various art forms of paintings, sculptures, photography and digital art by contemporary artists.
