Hoan Gallery will launch its 2024 Season with an art show featuring life works of the late great Chong Liew Syn, founder of the Sarawak Fine Arts School.
About 100 art pieces, many never before seen, will be showcased at the gallery for an eight-week long show, which promises to be a highlight of Sarawak’s cultural calendar this year.
The show, titled “Hidden Gems: The Life Works of Chong Liew Syn”, starts Jan 19 at the gallery at La Promenade Mall.
“We found Chong’s art from when she herself was a student in Hong Kong in the 1960s, through to the 1970s, 80s and 90s. We cherrypicked the most beautiful works, which also reveal the transformation of her artistic style over her lifetime.”
The show collection encompasses the entire career of Chong. There will be watercolours, oil painting and acrylic.
