I attended the opening of White Canvas Gallery and their first exhibition by 4 artists on Wednesday night (30th June).
The exhibition, aptly called - An Art Exhibition of Sketched of Tiong Bahru Estate was curated within 2 months. The four artists, Paul Ng, Miel, Don Low and Tia Boon Sim
took an estimated of 4 weekends each to complete their artworks. I was told that they each painted images of Tiong Bahru estates under the sun every weekends.
To those of you who don’t know much about Tiong Bahru, its one of the iconic public housing estates in Singapore. Build by SIT before World War I. Tiong Bahru was bulit in 3 phases. I got to know about this bit of history by local architect Mr Lee Wai Fong who gave a short presentation about Tiong Bahru at the event.
Open Daily 12pm to 8pm, except Sundays and Mondays
White Canvas which is a new gallery at Tiong Bahru will also be hosting art classes and artist’s talks in the month of July. For more information about their services, check out their website.
