Gallery Art Chamber is in the heart of the famous Calangute / Candolim beach belt in the Tourism Paradise of Goa. The gallery lies behind the noisy main road from Calangute to Sinquerim behind the Kamat Holiday Homes complex in the quiet residential area amid lush green palm orchards and traditional Goan houses. The Gallery exists since 1997 and represents a number of Goan, Indian and international contemporary artists.
As an expanding cultural center in India, Goa is increasingly attracting 'cultural tourism'. It has two official languages (Konkanni and English) as well as many other tongues spoken by its multi-cultural population. This provides the basis of a lively cultural scene that organizes a great array of cultural events. The Residency is a new activity of Art Chamber because of its central location between the local and the International artscene.
