The Hong Kong Visual Arts Society (VAS) and Art Experience Gallery join forces and are proud to jointly present “Visions Present and Future” – The Hong Kong Visual Arts Society 43rd Annual Exhibition. For the very first time, The Hong Kong Visual Arts Society is collaborating with a local gallery. This exhibition will showcase more than thirty pieces of recent work by seventeen Hong Kong artists to present a great diversity of media and styles from Chinese and Western painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture to installation art. It is also a cross-generational dialogue between renowned veteran artists and young emerging talents. Seven new members of the Society are invited to participate in the 43rd annual exhibition, include Peggy Chan, Michelle Fung Kuen Suet, He Jilan, Paul Pang, Raymond Pang, Wong Wing Tong, and Malone Yuen.

Titled “Visions Present and Future”, it speaks loudly of the Society’s vision to pass the baton to the younger generation artists. Art Experience Gallery who shares the same vision and goal to nurture young artists and cultivate the local art scene, is honoured to co-present this exhibition with VAS. Throughout the works shown in this exhibition, each artist speaks a strong and unique dialogue of their cultures and identities, embracing the passion for life and creation, and translating inspirations into their own visual languages. VAS annual exhibition is an important event in the Hong Kong art calendar as this occasion provides an excellent opportunity for members to communicate their creative achievements and ideas to a wider public.

To further encourage and facilitate dialogues between local artists, two seminars will take place at Art Experience Gallery on 15 July 2017, and 29 July 2017. It is open to everyone who wishes to participate.
