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.

Students and representatives from Toshiba and the local schools join Dr. Pongdej Chaiyakut, Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts.

Troy – All is fair in love and war

Greek warriors ready to fire at the Trojan stronghold

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.
