Who says you have to be an artist to start an art gallery? Love for art comes through perception…. and freedom to put life into that love. Vandana Sood Aggarwal did just that when she introduced Galerie5 to the city in DLF Phase-1, Gurgaon.
An entrepreneur and an art enthusiast, Vandana led a successful business life in corporate events, brand activations and blogging on wellness. This is where her creative inclination began to take shape and she found herself increasingly drawn into the world of art. Awed by galleries and museums during her visits to New York, Paris, Istanbul amongst other cultural hotbeds, she felt the need to recreate a similar experience in her city – a viewing gallery that offered curated art for sale. And that is where Galerie5 was conceptualised.
Galerie5 is the freshest addition to Gurgaon’s vibrant art and culture community, providing a sublime space to discover and buy contemporary art by some of the country’s finest contemporary artistes like Farhad Hussain, Tejinder Kanda, Jagmohan Bangani, Jitender Dangi, NIren Sen Gupta, Bandana Kumari and Bimmi Khan, amongst others.
Located on Golf Course Road, one of the busiest and upscale areas in the city, the space is designed to offer a respite from the city’s fast paced lifestyle and once inside, you find yourself cocooned in an oasis of calm, surrounded by beautiful art and soft music.
What To Look Forward To
Not restricting her passion for art to renowned artists, Vandana plans to create a space to showcase curated works and ideas by young and upcoming artistes and entrepreneurs.
Currently, Galerie5 is running a group show of works by the gallery artists – ‘Bahaara, Notes from Spring’. On till February 15, 2020.
Where: A26/5, DLF Phase 1 (Near DT Mega Mall), Golf Course Road, Gurugram
