Art is a way of expressing who we are and art galleries are a medium of bringing it forth. They have been instrumental in inducing the concealed and mysterious essence of ancient existence by acknowledging and preserving its value. Certainly, had it not been for art galleries, we wouldn't have realized the depth of cultural richness and vibrancy. Not only, visiting art galleries have nurtured out creative heads but also acted as a gateway to art education.
