Galerie Sara Arakkal

Supporter Type


The story of ‘Galerie Sara Arakkal’ is the story of a great journey. The very idea of this gallery has its roots in ‘Art in crafts’, which was established in 1997, mainly focusing on reproductions, artifacts and crafts. Through ‘Art in Crafts’ had its own identity in the art field, its promoter Sara Arakkal wanted her endeavor to play a major role in the contemporary art scene in India. She felt that ‘Art in Crafts’ should diversify into a new area and promote the artists in the country, especially South India, with a special focus on young artists and women artists. It was this idea in mind that Sara established Galerie Sara Arakkal, which was formally inaugurated by the then Honorable chief Minister of Karnataka, Sri S.M.Krishna, on 29th August 2003. Within a short span of time, the gallery has found a prominent place in the cultural map of not just Bangalore, but the country at large. The gallery is being operated from a spacious, architect-designed and aesthetically constructed premise of over 1500 square feet, at BEML layout, ITPL Road, Bangalore.
