National Art Gallery Opens !

As we discussed here and here about the National Art Gallery of Islamabad – PNCA; first the dates of NAG’s inauguration were set to be in march’s end, President was not available; Islamabad saw some redness around and not to forget the CJ cases … finally Peace comes back and NAG’s inaugurated. Rs.456 Million were consumed to make NAG the reality …!

The previous art gallery of PNCA in F-7/4 was not appropriately located; pieces of gold laid in shambles. Brick structure again but it looks appropriate to host L’Arte Grandeur.

Quoting from the website:

National Art Gallery at Islamabad is the only one of its kind in Pakistan where works of art representing prominent artists are displayed permanently for viewing of public. The significant collection of these treasures of art is being collected in small rooms being turned into National Art Gallery. Almost 423 art pieces are in our permanent collection, purchased or gifted by the artists for National Art Gallery.

You can view the complete Architectural plan of NAG here, it’s located in F-5/1 near the Constitution avenue, next to Awami Markaz and PTA building.

News reports in detail about NAG.

It’s open for visitors now … Bang in to enjoy the lovely creations of our own artisans.
