Kumnooh: Cambodia arts for the week commencing 8 October 2013

Greetings:

After the slow and wet weekend of Pchum Ben, another active week as we head towards festival season in November/December/January….

From 6.30 pm on Thursday 10, Romeet Gallery is hosting an exhibition by young photographer Neak Sophal, entitled Sonleuk, work “somewhere between landscape and portraiture.” Sophal’s work has already been exhibited in China, Berlin and key events in and around Cambodia.

Cambodia’s participation in 24 Hour Drawing Day 2013 over the weekend 28/29 September at Java Café turned out to be the best yet, according to organisers Siew Phew Yeung/Our Books, with the participation of professional Cambodian comic artists to tourists and most categories in between. From Thursday 10th, you can view examples of the comics produced at Rik Reay Gallery / Noodle Shop (St 178 near St 19), while the Strip All Night exhibition celebrating the last five years of drawing days continues downstairs at Java Café and Gallery.
