Latest works by artists for neighbourhood scheme featured at Central
Library
*********************************************************************

More than 40 works created by selected artists/units in the Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme (AIN) this year are now on display at the Hong Kong Central Library.

"Artists in the Neighbourhood Scheme III Launching Exhibition" runs until Thursday (June 30).

The exhibition was officially opened today (June 27) by the Assistant Director (Heritage and Museums) of the Leisure and Cultural Services (LCSD), Mr Gerald Tsang Chu-chiu, and the Art Adviser of the LCSD and Chairman of the AIN III Judging Panel, Mr Lui Chun-kwong.

Speaking at today's ceremony, Mr Tsang said the AIN, organised by the Art Promotion Office (APO), was one of the important activities to promote community art.

"The scheme aims to bring visual art out of the museums to the community, so as to boarded our audience base and carry out the concept of 'Museums without Walls'," Mr Tsang said.

"The scheme was launched in late 2000 and was well received by the artists and the public. This year, we have received 124 applications which is the best result we have ever obtained."

Nine artists and three art units, made up of budding and established artists, have been selected to join this year¡¦s scheme. They include mixed-media artists Man Fung-yi and Mok Yat-san, Zoe Yung and Tien Chi, Amy Cheung and So Yan-kei; sculptors Wong Tin-yan and Lee Chin-fai; interactive artist Alvin Yip; illustrator Michael Kwong; Chinese ink painter Hung Hoi; Western-style painter Helen Au; ceramicists from the Contemporary Ceramic Society (HK); and installation artist Marc Leung.

Solo exhibitions of the selected artists/units will be scheduled to take place from September, 2005, to 2007 at different venues. Apart from the LCSD¡¦s venues, the APO has lined up different venues such as MTR stations, bookstores and shopping malls in public estates.

The Hong Kong Central Library is located at 66 Causeway Road, Causeway Bay. It is open daily from 10am to 8pm. Admission is free.
