|The extended on- tour exhibition in MACAU - The HKMAPS 5th Anniversary Members' Exhibition ~ Dr Amy Pang, Chairperson|
The HKMAPS 5th Anniversary Members' Exhibition, starting 2013, and since then continuing in several Hong Kong hospitals, had a dramatic new development on 16 March 2014.
Our members' exhibition inaugurated its tour of Macau. This is the 1st HKMAPS foray outside Hong Kong, and allowed the works of many of our members to be seen beyond Hong Kong.
The Macau exhibition runs from 16 March to 5 April 2014, at The Plaza Art Gallery, 1st Floor, Edf. Xin Hua, Rua de Nagasaki, Porto Exterior, Macau.
Brand new re-prints of the original works were made, and specially remounted to conform to the requirements of this site. The results were a very appealing fresh look for our photographs.
The opening ceremony of this chapter of the exhibition was presided by the President of the HKMA, Dr. TSE Hung Hing and the Chairman of the Recreation and Cultural Committee, HKMA, Dr. CHOW Pak Chin. Joining them at the ceremony were Dr. LEI Chin Ion, Director of Health Bureau, Macao SARG, and Dr. CHAN Iek Lap, Member of Legislative Assembly, Macao SARG cum Chairman of Board of Directors, Macau Chinese Medical Association, Dr. LAO Tong Nei, Chairperson of the Macau Chinese Medical Association, Mr. LAI Wing Chiu, Honorary Chairman of The Photography Salon Society of Macao, Mr. LEI U Weng, Supervisory Chairman of The Photography Salon Society of Macao cum General Manager of The Plaza Restaurant, 洪火山先生, Chairman of Council of The Photography Salon Society of Macao
The event was well attended and many members made the trip to Macau to attend. As well as our members, many dignitaries of HK photography world also graced this event with their presence.
Local Macau enthusiasts and luminaries came along. One particular private collector was so enamored with some of our members' works that he expressed an interest in buying some of these prints!
This extension of our members' exhibition would not have been possible without the contributions of many individuals. These include our committee members, the staff of HKMA in particular Mrs. Yvonne LEUNG, Ms. Gloria CHAN and the Membership Services Team, the HKMA council and President, Mr. LEI U Weng, the General Manager of the Plaza Art Gallery.
