About Kashi Art Gallery

Kashi Art Gallery is located on Burgher Street near the Fort Kochi Beach. It is basically an Old Dutch house that was converted into something marvelous by Anoop Skaria and Dorrie Younger. This unique art gallery-cum-café had a grand opening in 1977 with an exhibition by the talented artist CV Ramesh. Over the years, this place emerged as the favorite hangout of younger crowds and contemporary art lovers alike. The gallery has been host to some of the grandest contemporary art exhibitions by famed artists namely Zakir Hussain, Valsan Koorma, Anant Joshi, Sosa Joseph and NN Rimson. An impressive and permanent collection of the works of artists like Pradeep Naik, K.S Radhakrishnan, and Christina Mamakos are on display here. Needless to say, the interiors are beautifully designed. Adjacent to the art gallery is a small café that is famous for its lip-smacking menu. The café is a unique blend of ancient and modern and serves a variety of eateries and beverages like pancakes, espresso coffee pots, pies, cakes, shakes, mocktails. You name it, and they have it. What is interesting to note is the way they serve food creatively over huge colored platters with an artful presentation. Overall, a visit to the Kashi Art gallery and café will be a welcome change from the hubbub of the city or weariness of the travel.

Historical Context: This Gallery was established in 1977.Apart from gallery this place is a meeting palce as well.
