A new mixed-media exhibition "Khmer Obscura" opened at Meta House Tuesday. The exhibition showcases works by an Australian artist Stephen Eastaugh and Argentinean photographer Carolina Furque, who employ mixed-media including painting, sewing and photography in their art works.

The exhibition opened at Meta House on Tuesday and will run until October 30. ANITA SUREWICZ
