Nirvana, an oil painting by Khun Sovanrith, priced at $1200
Tonight's opening of the art exhibition at the Reyum Gallery was well attended, especially by the younger element who flocked to have their picture taken next to one of the paintings and to enjoy their fill of the free snacks on offer. Of the 23 contemporary oil paintings on show by the two artists, Venn Savat and Khun Sovanrith, the majority had an abstract touch to them, taking them out of my own personal taste range. I must admit that I find little of interest in much abstract art and the three paintings I've posted here were my favourites from the exhibition. Each painting is for sale, with prices ranging from $267 up to $1200, and will be on show through til the end of August at Reyum, on Street 178, next to the National Museum.
