Seventeen students and some visiting artists exhibited their works at the
Trace of Life Art Thesis Exhibition from graduating students of the Faculty
of Fine & Applied Arts at the Prince of Songkla University, Pattani Campus
at CMU Art Center. One of the visiting lecturers spoke at length before
cutting the ribbon with the head of the Chiang Mai University’s Faculty of
Fine Arts. He noted that Pattani has a long history of art and culture and
hopes that in the future it will have developed the same thriving cultural
scene as Chiang Mai.
He added that the school looks forward to putting students’ works on show
again next year adding that such exchanges are important to bind the country
and its peoples together in harmony and understanding.
Students stood proudly with their diverse artworks, ranging from woodcuts,
to mixed media paintings and sculptures. The exhibit is on display on the
ground floor of the CMU Art Center until June 28, 2014.
