HRH Princess Soamsawalee opened the third Royal Exhibition Honoring HM the King, an exhibition allowing contemporary artists a chance to compete for prizes while raising money for royal charities.

The centerpiece of the exhibit, which concluded Feb. 7, was artwork done by His Majesty himself. A portion of proceeds from art sales will go to Princess Soamsawalee’s Princess Pa Foundation.

The event also featured music and performances from the Culture Ministry’s Contemporary Art and Culture Office. The final day featured art lectures.

The exhibition aimed to sponsor, promote and broadcast recreational contemporary art and culture to increase intellect and integrate it into society to open opportunities for artists to exchange creative art experience and inspire students to attend more art events.

The previous two shows were organized by freelance artists in Pattaya and received good responses. The third show, sponsored by the Culture Ministry, was also being supported by private-sector companies, such as Central Festival.
