Diverse range of artworks on display

Art works ranging from abstract paintings to embroidery, digital art to clay sculptures are on display at the 4th edition of Her Expression, an annual art exhibition that celebrates local female artists and their works.

The exhibition opened on 30 Oct 2017 at the Voluntary Artists Studio in Thimphu (VAST) gallery in Le Meridien and VAST studio in Chubachu, Thimphu.  Forty eight women artists, some as young as Tenzin Dema who is not even four, are taking part in it.

Bhutanese women sculptors 

For the first time ever, the exhibition has clay sculptures by Bhutanese women sculptors on display. Lhamo Chozom is one of them.

“In the past, such works were done only by men but now, with the change in time, I feel that nothing is impossible,” she said.

“Many people appreciated our work and some even asked us if we did it on our own.”

The exhibition is an initiative of VAST. It was first held in 2014 and has been an annual event since. It will run till 24 November 2017.
