Smita Upadhye: Saree & The Feminine

Smita Upadhye Upstairs Gallery

In this one-off exhibition, our artist Smita Upadhye portrays an aspect that binds all Indian women through threads of elegance; their love for sarees. To define, these are five to nine yards of light material in form of bliss adorned by every woman in India. It’s not just a cloth to be draped around your waist but has a lot more to offer - a deeper emotional connection with every feminine.
