Andaman-inspired art on show

ภูผาสู่อันดามัน Exhibition Krabi Contemporary Art Museum

The latest show at Krabi Contemporary Art Museum brings together the work of a group of amateur and professional artists from the north east and south of Thailand who share a love of this corner of the kingdom. They have created personal work inspired by the profound effects the landscape and culture have had on them and, as a collective, present a unique insider-outsider view of our local area.

The exhibition, entitled Phu Pha Su Andaman (ภูผาสู่อันดามัน), translates directly as “Mountains meeting the Andaman Sea” – a neat summary of the topography – and comprises 80 works of watercolours, acrylic and oil painting, as well as photography.

Entrance to the show, which runs until 21 December, is free. While perhaps not worth a special visit, you may like to stop by while in town – the Museum is located right next to the oft-visited Wat Kaew temple on Issara Road.

Opening times: Tue – Sun, 10.00 – 17.00 (closed for lunch between 13.00 – 14.00)
