Patnitop, Jammu: September 9, 2023 – Skyview By Empyrean has successfully hosted Jammu region’s first ever art retreat — Sama-Vaya, that had six artists and craftsmen from across India in residence at the property for five days. The highlight of the retreat was the exhibition held on September 9, displaying individual masterpieces as well as collaborative works of art that the artists created during they stay in Jammu. Among those who attended the exhibition were students, local artists, art aficionados from across the country and the who’s who of the region.

Organized under the curatorship of Anupa Mehta and Anuradha Sorabjee, the Sama-Vaya Art Retreat brought together a fusion of award-winning artisans and craftsmen, including Mohan Kumar Verma, Ramesh Hengadi, and Sanjay Chitara, alongside contemporary artists Sarika Mehta, Bhairavi Modi and Kanchan Chander.

Each of the artists’ works at the exhibition vividly captured the vibrant colours of the landscape, the intricacies of local traditions and the serenity of the region’s famous spiritual sites. Students from the Fine Arts Department of Jammu and Kashmir, who came to see the artworks displayed, engaged in interactive sessions with the talented artists and exchanged ideas and experiences, further enriching the event.

Through the course of the retreat, the artists created art that was inspired by the natural beauty, spirituality and cultural richness of Jammu, Patnitop and Sanket valley; by Skyview by Empyrean, a 22-acre mountain sanctuary that seamlessly merges premium hospitality, adventure, nature, and luxury; and by Jammu’s environment, rich in flora and fauna.

The Sama-Vaya Art Retreat, inspired by the Sanskrit word ‘union’ symbolizing the weaving of colorful cotton threads into a single magnificent fabric, served as a platform for these artists and craftsmen to collaborate, exchange ideas, and craft inspiring masterpieces. Just an hour’s drive from the revered Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Temple at Katra, Skyview by Empyrean, nestled in the picturesque Sanget Valley-Patnitop, Jammu, provided an idyllic backdrop for the retreat with its panoramic views of the majestic Pir Panjal range
