 JEHANGIR ART GALLERY 

Entrance to Jehangir Art GalleryThe Jehangir Art Gallery owes its birth to Sir Cowasji Jehangir, the Second Baronet, who along with K. K. Hebbar and Dr. Homi Bhabha, recognised the need for a dedicated art gallery in Mumbai in 1946. Sir Cowasji offered a grant of Rs. 2,50,000/- to the government to set up the gallery, provided the government came up with the land. A part of the Prince of Wales Museum compound was selected for the purpose. The gallery, which eventually cost Rs. 7, 04,112/-, was formally inaugurated on 21st January, 1952, with the 61st annual exhibition of the Bombay Arts Society. The gallery has two main halls - the 2700 sq. feet Auditorium Hall with 180 feet of hanging wall space, and the 3700 sq. feet Exhibition Gallery with 370 feet of hanging wall space. The Exhibition gallery has three sections and can be hired fully or section wise. The Jehangir Art Gallery is generally rented out. The lending library rents out original works of art to member individuals and institutions. The gallery also organises courses in art appreciation, art history and art criticism. Within the building of the Jehangir Art Gallery are the Chemould and the Terrace Art Galleries.

 ART WALK 

Art Walk is not a gallery in the real sense of the term. It is a passage in the Oberoi Shopping Centre that has been converted into an art gallery. The Oberoi Hotel has an unusual arrangement with the artist who exhibits. It does not charge any money from the artist, but selects one of the exhibits for its private collection. It also places the restriction that no exhibit can be priced above Rs. 20,000/-. The gallery can be booked for a period of two weeks. While the sometimes stuffy atmosphere that marks most art galleries is not found here, browsing can be a little distracting, with most shoppers jostling past unimpressed.

Address: Oberoi Shopping Arcade, Oberoi Towers, Nariman Point, Mumbai - 400 021.

 GALLERY CHEMOULD  

ChemouldGallery Chemould, the brain child of Kekoo and Khorshed Gandhy, started on the first floor of Jehangir Art Gallery in 1963. Before the gallery opened, the duo were very much a part of the contemporary art movement, their frame shop Chemould Frames being preferred by the emerging artists of that era. The framing shop began taking the form of an impromptu art gallery in a city that was short of platforms for artists to showcase their work. Since its inception, the gallery has hosted exhibitions by eminent artists that has included the likes of Tyeb Mehta, Swaminathan, Ram Kumar and Hussain. Some of their most exciting moments include their involvement with the Bombay Arts Festival, and a retrospective on Hussain called "21 years of Painting." 1984 saw the Gallery Chemould setting up the Chemould Publications and Arts Trust. Today the gallery is run by Kekoo's daughter Shireen Gandhy who has been instrumental in promoting Indian art abroad.
