Collector's Corner: The Private Textile Collection of Khun Kanittha Rogers

Time: 10:30 a.m.
Place: Acala Gallery, 312 River City (3rd Floor), by the river

Khun Kanittha Rogers’ collection of textiles began about ten years ago, and she has been adding new pieces to her collection ever since. She bought pieces that appealed to her and has an eclectic collection of Asian textiles mainly from China, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia that include silks, antique clothing, embroidered pieces and those from a temple. Khun Kanittha has invited a few friends to supplement the collection for our Collector’s Corner with textiles from several Asian countries, including Laos and Bhutan. There will be about 70-80 textiles to view ranging in age from 50 to 150 years, and about 20 Tibetan carpets

As Khun Kanittha lives on the outskirts of Bangkok, she has agreed to show the textiles at her gallery in River City. Please join as at the Acala Gallery, 312 River City (3rd Floor) by the river.

The donation is Members: B100 and Non-members: B200.
