ART GROOVES is an Art forum which was started by Poornima Dayal in early 2020 when the pandemic had just began.
Being an artist herself since three decades and having displayed her works across several countries, Poornima realized that there are scores of extremely talented artists and photographers in search of a platform. She wondered how various artists across the globe would be exhibiting their works since all the galleries had shut down.
That’s when the idea of Art meet came up. Art meet is an online platform where artists display their art works and specially invited guests of eminence inspire them to discover their talent and blossom as professionals.
ART GROOVES, is Poornima’s Pro Bono initiative which has over a hundred associated artists and skilled amateur photographers. These are home makers, enthusiastic professionals with tremendous skills and young, budding student artists.
ART GROOVES conducted its first online Art Fair in February 2021. This was critically acclaimed, widely reported in some leading national dailies and was very successful.
On Nov 14th 2021 it launched its 2nd online art exhibition.
This time there are 34 participating artists with about 100+ works on display including an amazing variety of paintings, photographs as well as artefacts. Renowned artist Late Mr.Bireswar Sen’s wonderful works are on display. He is one of India’s most celebrated artists and practitioners of the ‘Wash’ technique of paintings.
