Landscapes and Sentiments
Bernie’s solo exhibition at the Art and Culture Center, Thepsatri Rajhabat University, Lopburi, has been a success as it was planned to be. The exhibition is composed of six series of three major media, Acrylic, Watercolour, and Oil Paintings.
The six different series of different media has been carefully prepared by Bernie that each group would compliment to each other, composing the The Landscape and Sentiments art exhibition. Landscapes, flowers, and abstract works were included portraying Bernie’s way of thinking in life and how landscapes affect him as a human being.
Ajarn Prachak Chindamat on Bernie’s left hand side, was the concert master for the Saraburi Community Orchestra. The orchestra performed some pieces to open and continued on while the exhibition was going on. The exhibition gave a unique kind of vibe as music from the orchestra played along while people were viewing around and looking at the works of Bernie.
Ajarn Wilaiwan Chumpirun opened Bernie’s exhibition with her speech of kind words, giving the exhibition blessings from her office as it will run from January 10-31 of 2013.
Dr. Kanya Kongsungneum was invited by Ajarn Wilaiwan to translate her speech into English from the Thai language since the opening of the exhibition was attended by different nationalities.
Dr. Phakdee Mangmiwatthana was an invited guest as he also gave his kind words to introduce the Ali Bernie Buga-ay to the audience who attended his exhibition.
