Building on the success of their last event in March, local artist Tony Cheng and the Sai Kung District Council will be bringing Sai Kung Art and About again this December. After four years of planning and desire to bring art to Sai Kung, Cheng co-founded the outdoor art event and with the help of Sai Kung District council, Sai Kung Community Centre and Sai Kung District Office and was able to turn the concept into more than just an idea and bring it to fruition.
The previous event back in March was the first Sai Kung Art and About which saw artists from all over Hong Kong come together and display their creative work. Over 50 of these artists came personally to share their creative ideas and meet guests and allow them to understand how their creative minds work.
“For this December’s event, we will be bringing you many new artists that are interested in showcasing their talents and creative ideas into Sai Kung Art And About; bringing new themes and activities for visitors”, Cheng says. Ranging from street artists to sculptors, there will be over 70 artists to meet, live art demonstrations, mural paintings and free art workshops. “I hope that you will enjoy the event, and others like it in the future”, adds Cheng.
Sai Kung Art and About will be held on December 3 and 4, from 12.30 to 6pm at different locations in Sai Kung town.
Art booths and pavement drawings can be found on Mei Yuen Street, ground paintings at Sai Kung Waterfront, exhibitions at Sai Kung Jockey Club Town Hall, art booths at Tin Hau Temple square, and wall paintings on Po Tung Road and Sha Tsui Path. For more information, visit www.skdcc.org
