MWO's Annual Show

The Malaysian Watercolour Organisation's annual show is a much awaited affair among watercolour lovers and this year is no exception.

Being held at the NN Gallery till April 15, this year's exhibition should not be missed if you are seriously considering collecting some very good pieces from the nation's top watercolourists.

For those unaccustomed, the Malaysian Watercolour Organisation is one of the most active organisations dealing in watercolour in Malaysia. Among its stable of painters include Chow Chin Chuan, Calvin Chua, Yong Look Lam, Sani Md Dom, Rafiee Abdul Rahman, and Mansor Ghazalli, among others. Under the able leadership of Tan Sri Samsuddin Osman (the patron) and Dr Wong Seng Tong (president), the members have come up with some striking works this time.

Over 80 pieces works of art on a wide range of subjects, mostly striking landscapes such as fishing villages and kampung scenery, plus some townscapes have been put up by over 40 members and this year's works are extremely good. I will not spoil the fun telling you more here but will give you an peep into some in the photos below.
