Very interesting place to see

Visited Kerkar art gallery the first year we went to Goa and went to the (Tuesday) Evening performance which was about 250r each if I remember. We were given a bottle of Limca (ugh! But never mind, and were seated in the back courtyard of the centre. Seating for about 20-30 I think and the courtyard was lit with atmospheric tealights, temple lantern type lighting and there was the smell of incense. The performance was preceded by a very short but informative talk and then each performer gave short intro to there performance. Saw a sitar and tabla player and classical indian dancers. Lasted about 2 hours and was well worth the visit. There is also the art gallery there which is small but very interesting to see or purchase items(no pressure whatsoever).

Kerkar Art Complex, is the largest private contemporary art Complex in India. Every artwork is dedicated to Goa, Goans and Ocean. Complex houses many art work like a grand Church Bell, whenever rang produces different musical sound, Portuguese Butterfly bread, Chicken Cafreal, migration of Hindu Deities during Portuguese attack on Hindu Temples and their demolition, from Margao to the Jungle of Ponda by boats, Shell work, various paintings and Pablo's Photo collection and many historical item related to the Goa, such as Indigo and Chilli. One special Chair which depicts that chair remain same but Rulers are rolling. Every artwork is excellent as created by the ideas of Inter National Fem Artist Mr. Subodh Kerkar and he mostly used rubber, wood, shells, and cloth. This complex is a great place to visit without having any bar. It is situated between Saligao and Nerul, at Plot No 79, Pilerne Industrial Area, Pilerne, Bardez, Goa, It has a nice theatre where visitors are validated by an hour documentary film and it has a restaurant too.
