BAC has always been open to work/ partner with any individual, group or organizations in regards of promoting local and international art and community. This is our pleasure to work with such wonderful people and organizations. We believe in collective efforts and its impact. Let us introduce our partner organizations and supporters.
For the first 2 1/2 years CHAUTARA art gallery resided at Edvard Munchweg on the beautiful premises of architect Jos Abbo. After 8 on-site expositions and participation in large events such as “Himalaya Film Festival” in Amsterdam, “German Nepal Day” in Bonn (two years in a row), “Dutch Nepal Day” in Amstelveen, TibetWekenAlmere (co-organizer), “kunstroute Almere” and “Almere kunstmarkt 2008” the gallery space closed at this address in September of 2008.
From May 2009 to June 2013 the gallery operated out of SOUL ESSENTIALS / ZINMERE center for yoga-training-coaching, where a great number of artworks can still be enjoyed to this day and visits can be arranged.
CHAUTARA does not operate as a physical gallery anymore, only as the www.chautara.nl web-presence including webshop. We have shifted our activities to comprehensive blogging about modern art and modern life of Nepal via www.theartofencouraging.com where we would be happy to welcome you!
