HOW KCA BENEFITS THE ARTISTS
KCA artists benefit from their own studio space that is located within the KL Campus that houses the School of Architecture (CEPT), Hutheesing Visual Art Centre and Amdavad ni Gufa. Artists have access to the common canteen, stationery store and are also able to utilise KCA services such as the library, internet / wi-fi facility and in-house assistance. Importantly the artists are given the opportunity to participate in a number of exhibitions that take place locally through other art galleries.
Visitors / Lectures / Seminars / Workshops
In the past few years well known artists and creative individuals such as Jyoti Bhatt, Vrndavan Solanki, Krishnamachari Bose, Walson Colleri, Anand Gandhi, Jatin Das, Sudarshan Shetty, Chinu Modi, Rekha Rao, Lalitha Lajmi, Latika Katt, Raghuvir Chaudhari, Walter D’Souza, Anjolie Ela Menon and many more have given lectures, seminars and conducted workshops at the Centre. They also spend time visiting the studios and give advice and guidance to the artists. All lectures and seminars are free for KCA artists.
Each year KCA arranges artist trips to various geographical and historical sites. Previous trips have included Polo Forest, Alibaug, Mumbai, Silvasa and Daman. Such trips generate awareness and understanding of other cultures and allows the artists to explore their creativeness.
Annual Exhibition in the KCA Gallery for Arts
At the end of the Artist Residency Programme the artists exhibit their works in the KCA Gallery for Arts. This exhibition is part of the Samaakalan Festival that is held at the beginning of each year. Many well known artists, gallery owners, critics and collectors visit the exhibition. This platform provides a great opportunity for artists to showcase their works.
