The gallery was inaugurated as a museum in April 2003, and in early 2006 became a full-time gallery. Since its inception we have had several exhibitions including “Lightning” by MF Husain, "50 Years of Bal Chhabda: Paintings in New York," Akbar Padamsee’s “Lines of Distinction, Strokes of Genius, Works on Paper 1959-2006” and most recently Pinnacle Progressives, which was a celebration of their anniversary exhibition from the private collection of Marguerite and Kent Charugundla, and their book release of the Lightning which was launched at the gallery, among others.
TamarindArt’s vision is to curate exhibitions that reflect a healthy balance between senior established artists and younger talents working with experimental forms of conceptual installations. This combination reflects some of the most important trends in contemporary Indian art.
