Second Putrajaya Watercolour Competition

Rohaizad Shaari - "Merentas Gemilang" - 56 x 76cm, 2007

THE second Putrajaya watercolour competition results are out. Work by those who took part, winners and selected exhibitors, as well as members of the organiser, Malaysian Watercolour Organisation, under the able leadership of Dr Wong Seng-tong, will be on exhibit at the Annexe Gallery of Central Market in Kuala Lumpur from Saturday.

Pheh It Hao - "The City, Putrajaya - Peacefully Hidden" - 56 x 76cm, 2007

In case you do not know where the location is, it is on the top floor of the building at the back of Central Market. The launching is on Saturday and workers are working at feverish pace to complete the lighting and position the displays. You may pop by the gallery if you are in the vicinity and treat yourself to Malaysia's best in watercolour art.

In case you are not in town now, you might like to know that the show will only end on Dec 14, so there's plenty of time.

Opening hours are from 10am to 6pm.

Urban Interpretations

There is a watercolour exhibition going on in town offering vivid images of urban scapes put together by two artists - Pheh It Hao and Tang Yeok Khang.

Organized by Pelita Hati House of Art, it is being held at 22 Jalan Abdullah, Off Jalan Bangsar till Nov 22. Viewing hours are from Mon-Sat (10.00am-6.00pm). Entrance is free and for details, call: 03-22848380.

I have not been to the show so this is the best I can come up with as the organiser only sent me an invite after the exhibition opened. However, he did invite me to visit the gallery thereafter. Didnt have the time to drop by yet, tho.

Just a note here: If you are organising a show, in watercolour expecially, let me know early please so that I can write more about it.

Anyway, here's an image of the above exhibition to give you a feel of what to expect.
