The Queen’s Gallery: Freedom Artists 96
I am always excited to join the art exhibitions of the Freedom Artists 96 around the city of Bangkok. The only problem this time is, the exhibition dates have fallen into the days of protest in Thailand. The date has already been booked at The Queen’s Gallery for a long time and the officers of the group and the head, Ajarn Saman Klungjaturat can’t do anything about it except go ahead with the exhibition and just expect the best out of it. The exhibition opened in January 25, 2014 and closed in February 25, 2014.
Here is The Queen’s Gallery in Bangkok. It was a great thing to have participated the exhibition with Ajarn Saman’s leadership and it is always exciting. The only thing is that, the protesters were also situated exactly on the major street where the gallery is also located. I don’t blame them or something, it is also their duty to have their voices heard by the present government; well, it was just a little bit difficult to be there.
My work as displayed on the wall together with the rest of the participating artists. The exhibition occupied at least four floors I guess and the opening could have been attended by a royalty, but of course it was really difficult so everything has to adjust to what was going on.
Anyways, that was great to have one of my works hanging on that wall of a prestigious gallery supported by the Queen of Thailand Herself, Her Majesty Queen Sirikit.
