ARK is the result of a vision
A vision for a futuristic hub in Vadodara for art, culture, and business
Gallery Ark is the culmination of a vision to shape the contemporary art narrative. With the aim to create curated art experiences, we push the boundaries of established definitions; of what is expected and familiar. This space has the flexibility to make 'the greats' more accessible while it also provides emerging artists with a platform. We do this with integrity towards the community and a passion for artistic enrichment.
