This is a great gallery on the east side of the river. It is professionally run and much more extensive than we realised it would be (about 5 rooms). We enjoyed our chat with the gallery owner, who gave us more insight regarding the artists,...More

Brilliant, modern building with views over the surrounding area. Well worth the walk over the river from the main town. There is also a temple and monastery complex behind the gallery so the two places make an interesting and unmissable afternoon.

The artists in this gallery are young Cambodians who seem to have met art to get along with life. Some paintings and sculpture are tough and reflect a lot of struggles but there are real original pieces that make the visit worthwhile. Some are not...More

The art is stunning. If you are in Battambang you need to go! It can be a bit tricky to find the gallery since it is placed a bit off, but just follow your map and you'll be fine.

A lovely little art gallery that’s definitely worth a visit, with some pieces that were very reflective of some of Cambodia’s dark past and present afflictions. If you’re in the area I would recommend visiting this quirky little place to support the local art community.

While it's true most of the works evoke the heavy past of the area, the quality of the paintings is for the most part of little talent. The wood carvings got my attention as depicting a more poignant vision. This is not for folks with...More

As a layman in this abstruse art and painting world, I was happily impressed by the revival of painting in Battambang, birthplace of most of Khmer culture. I was struck by sorrows pains and oppressions in paintings painted by young artists born in the 90's...More
