The Galeri Seni Mutiara up north in Penang is currently holding a group exhibition entitled Art Beyond Boundaries which will be running until the 25th of November 2012. This would be an art show that will feature several contemporary artists who are renowned for their respective mediums like oil and acrylic paintings of which 4 of them are Malaysians and the other four are from Singapore.
The unique element about the Art Beyond Boundaries is that the artists have known each other for 40 years and have been friends for that period of time. In that context, the artists who are aged between 60 and 66 are coming together to showcase their works that come from their education of the arts from the prestigious Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore. From Malaysia, the artists who are involved in the show are Chan Chiow Teng, Chia Hoy Sai, Goh Ah Peng and Heng Eow Lin while Jessica Kee Siyu Lian, Lee Hock Moh, Tan Kee Sek and Tan Kian Por are the artists representing Singapore.
The idea of the exhibition was actually envisioned by Heng where the show is curated by Koay Soo Kau. It was quite a remarkable exhibition which shows the bilateral ties and friendship of the 2 countries coming together in the name of art.
Opening hours Mondays to Sundays 11.00am to 6.00pm
