Airmarket, an airline flight ticket booking agency in Mongolia, opened a new location today in the country’s capital city Ulaanbaatar (UB).

What: A photography exhibition about Mongolia taken by an American over the past two years. A silent auction of the artwork will benefit local charity organizations.

Who: Chris DeBruyn, Photographer/Peace Corps Volunteer
Where: Xanadu Art Gallery, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
When: June 18, 6 p.m. (Opening Event) – June 23 (Closing day)
Price: free entry
