The gallery is open back again after the long weekend, and is yet having another gloomy day at the gallery.  The weather of course.

We've also received batch of our Proxies flyers which should reach you shortly.


We like to share some news article we've found on the internet today regarding the increasing support for arts in Singapore:

Singapore Arts Scene Sees Steady Increase In Support

And the headline starts out like this;

A total of 187 Arts Supporters contributed $3.7 million to the arts in 2008, 9% more than in the previous year. These sponsors will receive the Arts Supporter Award from their beneficiaries at a ceremony on 20 November.

The Arts Supporter Award was incepted in 2000 by the National Arts Council to recognise patrons who contribute up to $50,000 in a year to the promotion and development of the arts. The award aims to encourage a wider section of the community, particularly local businesses, small-medium enterprises, grassroots organisations and community groups to support the arts.

It is a good news indeed!

And another thing we've found: Iluma in Bugis is featuring artworks by Nanyang Academy students' works.  Some even for sale.
It seems like a good introduction for the art scene in Singapore as well as to recognize young emerging talents:

NAFA collaborates with Iluma Shopping Centre to bring arts to public

All in all, it is good to see our talents being on par with the 'second wave' of mainland Chinese works.  The rising talents of Generation Y artists from Indonesia and the predicted upbeat art market in the region in the near future.
