Young Friends has had an exciting 2016 as we end this glittering 35th anniversary year. We have enjoyed a number of events for YFs over the last 3 months, beginning with a collaborative event with the Friends of Hong Kong Museum of Art. Thanks to their kind invitation to join their organized private tours of Richard Winkworth’s exhibition at Ping Pong and Fung Ming Chip’s studio, YFs enjoyed a very cultural Saturday morning strolling past the walls of Ping Pong decorated with Winkworth’s seascapes, and getting up close with Fung Ming Chip’s work and the renowned artist himself at his studio.
YF members were well represented at the last of the Friends’ 35th anniversary events, the Gala Dinner at the China Club where we supported and celebrated the auctioning of five stunning artworks by CUHK graduates. Old and new members were able to catch up and discuss various art happenings both past and future, surrounded by great company, good food and wine, whilst raising funds for the Friends and supporting our local artists,
The last of our events organized this year took place in late November, when we had a generous venue and drinks sponsorship from Eaton House for our annual welcome drinks. It was a great opportunity for all members to get to know one another a little better over a festive drink.
We also enjoyed free VIP tickets to Ink Asia in December to view the contemporary ink works on display.
The popularity of our YF drinks gathering has been noted and we plan to organize more in the early New Year before the art months begin. We look forward to seeing many familiar YF faces over the year to come. Do keep up with past and upcoming events by following us, and liking us on Instagram and Facebook!!
