APRE Art House was founded in 2016 by Prerna Jain. It came about as the fruition of her long-term vision to contribute to the diverse and multi-layered space of modern and contemporary art, and to create an innovative platform for its understanding and outreach both nationally and globally.
With several multidisciplinary exhibitions, art fair, and arts programs executed over the last two years, APRE Art House has risen to the challenge posed by the complex pandemic period within the cultural industry. The Art House is envisioned as not just a gallery, but a platform to build networks of support and strengthen stakeholder relationships through professional channels. In contextualizing and addressing the crucial needs in the arts sector, the gallery aims to integrate itself and provide stability within a constantly morphing socio-cultural topography.
APRE offers art enthusiasts and connoisseurs the opportunity to engage with a meticulously selected range of art in diverse mediums and styles. APRE aims to promote a plural arts culture through regular physical and virtual showcases while also continuing to develop public programming.
APRE Art House works to continuously build and grow a network of artists, patrons, and collaborators in order to magnify the outreach of the arts and facilitate newer definitions of art practice and viewership.
