The Essence of Bengal Art




Essence of Bengal Art Exhibition
July 21 to July 23, at 58/A-1 Friends Colony East, New Delhi,

The art show with a difference

Group fifty, dedicated to the promotion of artists from Bengal, will showcase fifty of Bengal’s most prominent and emerging artists, at the Essence of Bengal Art Exhibition, held from July 21 to July 23, at 58/A-1 Friends Colony East, New Delhi, in an informal Home Art Soiree.

Piloting the Informal Art Soiree Concept in Delhi, the show will, perhaps, for the first time highlight the works of both established and emerging artists to the city art lovers, in a fun and relaxed environment, serving to demystify the art world to the ordinary personClearly at Group Fifty the idea is to support the artists and to bring art to the buyer at a more realistic and affordable price. It also enables many established and emerging artists to showcase and sell their work, in Delhi, for the very first time, directly from us, without the high commission that galleries often charge.
The broad spectrum of works will appeal to all art lovers and offers something for everyone including those who are just beginning a collection. There are currently more than 50 pieces of contemporary art for sale available from the emerging and the established artists.


Backed by popular demand and the success of its two previous shows, Group Fifty will showcase the original works of fifteen contemporary artists from Bengal, bringing together the renowned artists, with the new and emerging artists
