Chief Guest Dr. Shankari Murali, the Additional Controller General of Accounts said, “Evoke – a beautifully put together show in an elegant gallery. Deriving inspiration from a range of themes – trees, seasons, wetlands, flora, fauna, the cosmos, divinity, the very universe, the works of these brilliant artists share a bit of their perspectives shaped in different media. Each wonderful piece of art beckons us not merely towards itself but also within ourselves to chart the landscapes that they Evoke within each of us.”

“Evoke” serves as a testament to the profound impact art can have in eliciting a response from the depths of our being. With each stroke of the brush, each intricate detail meticulously created, “Evoke” beckons forth a kaleidoscope of sensations. Here, the definition of evoke finds its truest expression as viewers are transported into a realm where the boundaries between perception and reality blur.

The show presents works of 16 artists in different mediums and styles. Each artist takes up a subject matter close to them and evokes in the onlooker their personal connection with that art.

The participating artists are Aarti Uppal Singla, Harsh Jalendra, Indraneel Ghose, Kavita Lomror, Khushroo Kalyanwala, Madhav Bhardawaj, Reena Chopra, Ritu Chopra, Sarla Chandra (Senior Artist), Shivam Sehgal, Shravani Dang, Sujata Khanna, Sushil Bhasin, Sushil Thakur, Tushar Nath and Winnie Singh.

“Evoke is a testament to the profound impact art can have on us. We are thrilled to present a collection of works by 16 talented artists that will evoke a variety of sensations and transport viewers into a realm where perception and reality blur. This show is a celebration of the power of art to move, transform, and connect us all” – Aarti Uppal Singla, Founder of The Art Exchange Project and Curator of Evoke – Ignite, Awaken, Stir
