"The Hong Kong Union of Visual Artists - Inaugural Exhibition"
2005-08-17 until 2005-08-25
University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong
Pokfulam, , HK Hong Kong

The Hong Kong University Museum and Art Gallery, The University of Hong Kong, and the newly renamed Hong Kong Union of Visual Artists will jointly presented the 'The Hong Kong Union of Visual Artists - Inaugural Exhibition' to celebrate the merging of the Confederation of Hongkong Visual Artists Limited and the Hong Kong Modern Art Society. The Hong Kong Union of Visual Artists has been established by a group of like-minded local artists with enthusiasm for the arts. Over the years, they have created numerous artworks and organized activities and projects to enhance public appreciation of the arts.

Through organizing exhibitions, they share their experiences of creating art and broadening their knowledge and vision. Among them, many members have dedicated themselves to teaching and contribute to the cultivation of a new generation of artists.

This exhibition will feature over fifty artworks by forty artists, including paintings, sculpture, photography, pottery and glass. In painting, there are artists who delve into traditional Chinese ink painting, those that adopt western media and aesthetic concepts, as well as those that incorporate western artistic notions with Chinese ink painting techniques to break free of traditional norms. Meanwhile, pottery artists explore different techniques to create bold and creative artworks. In sculpture, artists employ different materials and techniques, creating abstract works full of imagination. In recent years, there is a growing interest in glass art, emerging glass-making artists create impressive works using blown and moulding techniques.

As art lovers and creators, the members of the Hong Kong Union of Visual Artists, have made important contributions to the development of Hong Kong art.
