“The show is dedicated to the memories of potter Jyotsna Bhatt and printmaker Rini Dhumal,” says Samarth Mathur, Director and Co-founder, Masha Art. “This exhibition is about the balance of many journeys, and embraces a world vision,” he adds. Bhatt and Dhumal are the two gurus of MS University Baroda who are no more existing in their physical forms but are ever so present among us through their art works.

Sure enough, I have a dream is about celebrating the synergy of women in a world of great sadness and pain. It is a show that reflects the beauty of creation and the freedom of spirit of women artists in India.
“The world has millions of stories about women artists who struggle to find a style that matches their vision. All artists I feel must echo the philosophy of Francis Picabia who said artists must express the emotion which nature makes them feel without the least care for technique in order to reach their goal. I have picked women artists who have found their own pictorial freedom. I am looking at a show that exemplifies purity of thoughts in painting, sculpture and ceramics,” says show curator Uma Nair.
The show is on view till May 31 ( 11am to 8pm) at Masha Art, Lower Ground Floor, DLF Camellias, Gurugram
