I was invited by Maya Gallery for the vernissage of Singapore Contemporary Art Show. The gallery owner cum artist is Jeffrey Wandly who established the gallery with his wife Masturah. It was indeed interesting art fair with various of art works in a more spacious spaces.
Last week I have the privilege attending a vernissage of Steve McCurry: The Iconic Photographs where I met this famous photographer who propelled into fame for shooting photo of "The Afghan Girl". This exhibition is on going until 7 April 2016 in Sundaram Tagore Gallery Singapore.
Meanwhile Singapore Arts Museum offers free entry to the ticketholders of Art Stage 2016, and free entry for all after 6pm during this week.
State of Motion is a 3-hour bus tour organised for this Art Week. It costs only $12/person. It covers the places where they made films. Some of these original sites had disappeared due to the development of this land scarce state nation.
It is indeed an excellent weeks for the art buyers and art lovers.
The only setback is too little time to attend many wonderful activities!
