Narong Promjit, the manager of BMS Organizer Co. Ltd, a representative of Royal Phuket Marina or RPM, and representatives of artists from ‘Art Village’ together publicized Phuket Art Village Weekend, an arts market which will be held during September – December 2010 in the area of Royal Phuket Marina.
Narong said that BMS and RPM realized the ability of artists and art entrepreneurs in Phuket. Artwork had been used in many products including home decoration, souvenirs, and things that we use daily. However the art market in Phuket has been affected by the low season, consequently, BMS and RPM joined hands to hold the Art Village Weekend to promote arts and related products to foreign tourists and visitors coming to RPM.
The products in the event will be mainly from the ‘Art Village’ in Nai Harn, which is a center of artists in Phuket. There are artists from other places in Phuket intending to join the event as well.
Apart from arts that would be the highlight of the event, there would be performance arts, Nang Talung (traditional shadow puppet shows) and live music shown as well.
