The proud faces of the graduating class of Rajamangala University of
Technology, Lanna’s Department of Painting, Sculpture, Print-making, and
Thai Arts were front and center as the exhibition of their thesis works
opened on Thursday, February 13, 2014 at Chiang Mai University Art Center.
Watcharawit Pribwai and his
woodcut print was one of the many pieces on display.
Deputy Governor Charoenrit Sa-nguansat opened the event,
congratulating the 88 graduating students on their hard work and creativity
before entering the Center to view performance art, sculptures, and works of
art, 200 pieces in all.
Local art gallery owner Chairat Kamonoratep of Tita Gallery in Mae Rim was
at the exhibit opening and said that one of the things he enjoys with these
shows is the enthusiasm and almost naiveté of the students. “They will never
create another piece of art like this,” he pointed out noting that this work
is done for pure creativity, not for the idea of what others may like or
what may sell but just sheer creativity.
The works ranged from woodcut prints and paintings to sculptures and live
performances. The exhibit is on display until February 28 at Chiang Mai
University Art Center on Nimmanhaemin Road.
