Being married into a prominent family of India she conceptualised and started her career in one limited board-room space. The flair for showmanship and well developed insight drove her to transform the Gallery into what it is today. The credit of the three tiered Gallery which is aptly designed for interaction, experimentation and indulging in the understanding of art goes to the untiring efforts of Renu Modi.
