A vibrant space has shut its doors. Gallery Hittite was a welcoming place for artists and art lovers, warm, inviting, inclusive, without the arrogance and stuffiness of most galleries. The highlight for me and my daughter Shayona was that both of us were a part of their Christmas show in a unique way. Shayona painted an interpretation in dazzling colours of my black and white sketch below and we exhibited the works together.
Each of us sold some in the gallery, although lovers did not always translate into buyers, and, after three decades, the curtains were drawn.
Sara Claglar and Anna Zinato, thank you for the memories.
