A note from curator Ek Wongleecharoen; Assistant General Manager at the Roger Smith Hotel:
“My purpose of bringing Thai Artists Alliance to Roger Smith Hotel Lobby Series is to bring people awareness to the Thai Arts. I am a native of Thailand and even I have a limited knowledge in the Thai Arts. My only exposure of the Thai Arts is through the temple walls and I was fascinated by the intricate details that the artist put into the work. So I reached out to the Thai Artist Alliance to see if they will be interested to show some of their works in the lobby. As a result, we will have at least two shows dedicated to the Thai arts movement in NYC.”
