The gallery was started with a mission and vision to foster an understanding of art work. It seeks not just to curate and bring out the best of art forms but also to educate its visitors. To live up to its mission the gallery organizes shows which reaches out to the general public and gives them an opportunity to learn to understand and appreciate art and even enhance their living spaces with a piece of affordable art from Gallery Veda. With this in mind, several shows are planned through the year that will not only push boundaries of perception but also question the normal. “To make art more inclusive and not intimidating was the idea behind the gallery. Chennai, with its well-known love for the arts, provides the perfect setting for such a concept. The need for a distinctive space amid the homogeneity is what urged me to start the gallery," Preeti Garg founder of the gallery. The works of art reveal the past, celebrate the present and probe the future. What started off with an All Women show- “Firm Ground Beneath Her”, has today been a space for several shows of very well known artists including Chandra Bhattacharjee, Seema Kohli, Arpana Caur and Jogen Choudhury. The gallery has 2 venues- one nestled away in the pristine Rutland Gate 5th street, another at the Park Hyatt hotel. Some of the important shows by then include that of Seema Kohli, The Journey of Life by Nayanna Kanodia, Lotus by Yuriki Ando Lochan, The ambiguity of Landscape by Parvathy Nayar and Painting is not dead by Arpana Caur.
The gallery has also been part of Art fairs like the Kochi Muziris Biennale in 2014 and 56Th Venice Art Biennale in 2015 both of which showcased the works of Seema Kohli. Gallery Veda also offers an umbrella of services including choosing art works for home décor, art consulting and corporate gifting services and commissioning art works to artists of one’s choice. A contemporary space with a modern tone, Gallery Veda is the perfect space for every art lover! Always innovative and striving to achieve new paradigms, this gallery has achieved many milestones within a few years of its existence and has gone all out to prove that art is an experience and helps people transcends from being just buyers to being connoisseurs who understand and love art!
An art lover Preeti Garg has worked with Sanjay Tulsyan closely while organizing big shows like Art Chennai which was spread across various venues in the city. While working on these shows Preeti realized that the city of Chennai lacked a distinctive art space and decided to start Gallery Veda. What started with one space has today with her far sighted vision, gained two more venues and continues to grow. She always dreams to bringing affordable art closer to people so they learn to appreciate it.
The director of Tulsyan NEC Limited, a company dealing in steel bars, Sanjay Tulysan has been interested in art since his younger days. Over the years of collecting art work and appreciating it he realized the need for quality art shows in the city and came up with the idea of ART CHENNAI which was a roaring success. He has been closely working with artists and coming up with different shows and decided to set up Gallery Veda which now functions out of 3 venues and showcases art with a class. A simple, down to earth person Sanjay is a true connoisseur of art.
