On the art exhibition scene, Cambodian female artist Dina Chhan will present her latest solo exhibits with her Cross the Line presentation at Equinox on St 278 (near my home) from 7pm this coming Friday, 25th. Her work includes acrylic, enamel, ink and oil paintings that are abstract and contemporary in their style. Expect the unexpected. Before that, on Wednesday 23rd at 6pm at Java Cafe & Gallery, the first ever prize for Cambodian women artists will be presented by American Ambassador Carol Rodley. 45 entries were received from female artists around the country and the artist in first place will receive an engraved plaque and a cash prize of $800. A scoring system to decide the winners looked at technique, composition, content and material. It's the same night as the England v Slovenia World Cup decider (9pm) and the latest appearance of the Cambodian Space Project at La Croisette (7pm), so something's got to give.
