Casa Serena Art Gallery: Situated in front of the Police Park a colonial structure stands at No 22, Havelock Road, Colombo 5. The old building with its white walls and clay tiled roof rises serene and tranquil true to its name. The colonnade flanking the verandah has an almost Doric feel. The main floor area of the building is a cut and polished concrete floor that was salvaged while renovating the 90-year-old building. A combination of wrought iron and wood that is both aesthetically pleasing and decorative is used in the interior. This upper storey is tiered into different levels with short stairways- one to an area that displays a rare collection of books and the others to an exhibition space and terrace. Casa Serena is a new gallery and boutique space opened by NisansalaKarunaratne. Located in the hub of Colombo, this purpose built exhibition space opens its doors to local and international artists and designers. Herself an artist, photographer and graphic designer, Nisansala understands the importance of exhibiting works of art, be it photography, sculpture, video installations, graphic design or any form of traditional or contemporary art.
