Six Cambodian artists are exhibiting their works in Phnom Penh this month, and all of them were formerly students at the art school of Phare Ponleu Selpak, an NGO on the outskirts of Battambang. Created in 1994, the NGO includes free art, music and circus schools plus a centre for non-formal education, and a home for orphans and young people in difficult situations. Sokuntevy Oeur is exhibiting at the Meta House til 28 Oct; Net Phileap’s paintings are on show at the French Cultural Center til 9 Oct; and four more former students are showing their works at the Comme a la Maison restaurant, Mao Soviet, Loeum Lorn, Kchao Touch and Seum Kakada. I've already blogged that Vann Nath's current exhibition of his paintings is at the Bophana Center until 12 Oct. Two of the paintings are for sale and may go for around $2,000 apiece.
