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.

The artist, who divides her time between her native Japan and Chiang Mai presented her colorful and cheerful works, noting that moving to Chiang Mai taught her to love elephants and so she features them heavily in her works. Her pieces reflect her personality and her appreciation of the charm in life.
