The Archer & The Horseman
The first of its kind, The Archer and The Horseman Gallery is a venue for exhibiting contemporary Afghan visual arts. The central goal of the gallery is to provide a window of opportunity for gifted artists to gain international exposure, and in doing so, make a notable contribution to the long-term advancement of Afghan arts and culture worldwide. Art is a means of understanding human culture. Young Afghan artists, both women and men, express their feelings and thoughts in the context of today’s Afghanistan through their imaginative art work. The Archer and the Horseman is committed to bringing the remarkable art work of bright and talented artists from the heart of Asia to the culturally vibrant city of Vancouver. The Archer and the Horseman Gallery further enriches the cultural landscape of Vancouver by bringing the authentic art work of a generation of artists whose work is the product of a war-ridden society. Here, you will learn about Afghanistan’s cultural life, and a vision of the modern world, through the country's finest artists and their brilliant art works. The gallery is focused on presenting various works of the once-brutalized social groups such as women and the youth.
