In 2009 we began with an advisory group of distinguished artists and architects as our advisors. Many hours were spent in the courtyard under the champa tree with Habib Fida Ali, Arshad Faruqui, Amean J and beloved Ussman Ghauri – the most enthusiastic and determined amongst all to make Koel Gallery different from the rest. We discussed at length and elaborated on what Koel’s mission statement should be.
It became: “To bridge the divide between the Arts and Crafts.”
Koel designated a space for exhibitions, both for the Visual Arts and the Crafts, where Artists, Designers and Craftsmen would share a common platform.
The Gallery is housed in a peaceful, tranquil environment, where soft natural light bathes the walls and a sense of calm prevails, where works of art become one with Nature.
