Intended as a gallery exclusively for the students of JNTU College Of Fine Arts
(except in very extraordinary cases), JNTU Art Gallery stands out for its raw, untouched talent.
Started in 1990 by Stanley Suresh for the occasion of Rajiv Gandhi's visit to the college, this gallery was arranged in a scurry, and the ambiance of the place hasn't been altered an iota since then. Wooden panels for walls, hobnails sticking out all over the room, an unambiguous arrangement of paintings; if you are used to the normal shipshape appearance of an art gallery, JNTU Art Gallery will seem like the quintessential teenager's room. The only change wrought upon this place over the years has been the surge of paintings that have rested upon its panels - indulging, inspiring, and most of all, satisfying the onlooker.
I will choose not to mince my words; talent has its abode in this gallery. More likely than not, you will be impressed by the place for the disarrayed flair that it accommodates. For, these students speak volumes through their work.
While this gallery is around throughout the year, the college also holds exhibitions
at least once every quarter of a year - but, again, only for the display of its students' works. Of course, an audience is more than welcome.
To the misfortune of all art-collectors, these works are rarely up for sale. For, these students don't like to part with their endeavors, for the love of anything. You can see, you can even touch, but you cannot take them back.
