Strokes Art Gallery, of Mr. N. Sai Venkat (Civil Engineer; Interior Designer) is a place where one can experience art in its true form.
An interior designer by profession, Mr. Sai Venkat has many successful projects to his list of achievements. He has a passion for colours and a very high regard for Art and Artists. In his view, a piece of art completes a home or a workplace:
“Irrespective of the rigmarole and hectic schedules, a piece of art at our dwelling brightens the atmosphere and brings peace to the heart”.
Albert Pinkham Ryder, one of the earliest modern American painters, expressed his views of an artist:
Painting as an art form dates back to drawings on the walls of prehistoric cave dwellings. Today, it is considered a ritual, devotion and decoration. Our gallery helps the artists invent their own visual language and strives to experiment with new forms and unconventional materials and techniques.
Over the past, we have exhibited our artwork of the replicas of masters, nature’s bounty. Our paintings adorn the private collections of many homes and corporate locations in metropolitan cities across India.
We also provide an opportunity for learners at our institute, Priyanka’s School of Art, located at the same address.
We endeavour to bring out the skill and talent in our students and to recognise those who have the spirit and zeal to learn. We take pride in encouraging new ideas and imagination. Students at our institute are provided with various courses wherein they can choose their line of interest guided by proficient teaching.
To encourage students, we constantly hold exhibitions, among which “potpourri” was one. It was held in 2009 bringing together lady artists between the ages of eighteen to seventy-five.
Later, there was “Aakrithi”, exhibition of lights. Colourful, designer diyas, painted pots and other articles were on display and also for sale.
