London: For Indian art lovers in Australia, the Art Gallery of South Australia is hosting for the first time a major exhibition entirely dedicated to the arts of India inspired by the three great spiritual traditions: Jainism, Hinduism and Islam.

More than two hundred paintings, sculptures and other works of art dating from the 8th century to present day will be on display. Most of the works have never been exhibited before and it is also the first time that Jain art is exhibited so extensively in Australia.

The exhibition opens on October 19 until January 27. For more information click here and stay tuned for more details.
