The Annual Toshiba “Brings Good Things to Life” Art Exhibition tours
major provinces around Thailand with the latest stop in Chiang Mai as
well as Khon Kaen, Ubon Ratchathani, Loei, Nakhon Si Thammart, and
Songkhla exhibiting award winning art work for local residents as well
as displaying winners from the local competitions. The exhibition is
very successful, drawing a large number of students from the local and
surrounding provinces every year. Toshiba offers the tour takes place
because it is too difficult and costly for rural residents to travel to
Bangkok just to see good art –work and they believe every Thai should
have an equal chance to improve their sense of art appreciation.
This year there were over 100 works of art from students and members of
the general public on display in a variety of mediums and presentations.
The Chiang Mai winners were on hand to show their art, discuss their
methods and the reasons behind the painting. This free exhibition is
open until January 27 at the CMU Art Center on Nimmanhaemin Road. Open
Tuesday-Sunday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Troy – All is fair in love and war
Greek warriors ready to fire at the Trojan
Prem students are in rehearsal for their performance of the classic tale
of the battle at Troy with the beautiful Helen of Troy and deceptive
Trojan Horse. We all remember the movie, I suspect this one will be a
little less bloody! But I do hope they have a Trojan Horse. The play
will be held on Thursday, January 31 and Friday February 1 at 7 p.m. at
the Prem Auditorium and is open to the public. The entire play is being
performed by Prem students. Tickets are 200 baht.
Students learn the true costs of battle as
they rehearse for the play.
