Shivani's art gallery
I was glad to visit Shivani Virani's art gallery - Artistree . It is conveniently located at 29, Hargun House, Annie Beasant Road,Worli , Mumbai . It is on the main artery from Nariman Point to Airport next to Podar hospital ,Worli . it has more informal atmosphere, lot of different kinds of art work , colour as well as ink on paper which gave the entire room a feel of art and not merely a kind of show rooms mushrooming all over the city. with once glance i could make out that she had taken care of small minute details before putting up paintings on wall. she was sitting in her ante-room with her laptop . i had instantly liked the painting exhibition she had organised at Kitbmahal and that was the beginning of our interaction. After interacting with her , I thought here is some one who can understand and take care of my work .
she maintains a website - http://www.artistree.biz/ which is worth visiting. Apart from pages for her artists , she also have a page for children who can paint and upload their work, can sell their work . Fifty percent of proceeds goes to a the child artist and remaining fifty per cent is donated to a charity fund run by Rahul Bose .
