'Floating Stories'

Vaishali Oak | Chaiwala | 40” X 30” | Fabric Assemblage | 2014

It was in year 2010, ‘Game of Fortune’ an exhibition of contemporary Ganjifa’s by me alongside the Ganjifa’s from the collection of Raja Dinkar Kelkar Museum were exhibited for the first time in the museum as an experiment. 2010 onwards, we have started an activity every year on 23rd of October in the memory of former director Dr. H. G. Ranade.

We are proud to present ’Floating Stories’ an exhibition of fabric assemblage by artist Vaishali Oak (National Akademi Award Winner). . Vaishali is working with fabric since 1997 and was awarded by a fellowship by ministry of culture, Government of India.

‘Floating Stories’ draws an inspiration from a huge collection of 5000 leather puppets from the museum, the works are primarily dealing with the imagery surrounded around us and the interlacing anecdotes, stories, myths and gossips. She tries to surpass the superficiality of anecdotes, stories, myths and gossips by focusing on the visuals as a primary element of her works.

We are proud for the success of:
  "Expressions in Miniature Size 2006"
21st to30th July 2006
Expression can never be judged by the scale, but by its depth and intensity. Art in miniature size is like the Japanese 'Haiku' where the saturation is at optimum of ones expression, and is sometimes has a lasting impact.
  "Graphic & Drawing 2006"
Part I: 1st to 10th Sept. 2006.
Part II: 15th to 24th Sept. 2006.
Art of graphic and drawing is the skeleton of the artist's structural thought; Very often the seed of breakthroughs are hidden in the drawings and meticulous practice of graphic art.

"Young Art 2006"
24th November to 3rd December 2006.

Art at young is like a dynamite, power packed to create new, 'Young Art' is an endeavor to look for the new approaches towards the creative process.

Founder Artists

Raju     Sutar    Vaishali     Oak
This work you see along side is the result of a long journey of many curves. Raju started out on an exploration of curves as the route to reach the penultimate expression of Self.
After many fabulous canvasses, Raju’s vision has taken final shape here, as he proudly proclaims -“I am That”.
Vaishali was granted a government of India fellowship to explore the contemporary visual ethics & ethos of the traditional cultural Indian medium of ‘Godhadi’ or Quilt. Her vision has traversed the figurative and abstract, to
encompass the wear & tear of time, inherent in the Indian tribal Quilt. Her
work speaks from the heart about that which is true, sad & beautiful in Indian life.
