槟州艺术協会:一甲子的美丽纪录

梹城博物馆主席黄汉伟州议员

首先我恭贺槟州艺术協会庆祝六十周年纪念及出版纪念画册

梹州艺术協会创辦于1953年。当时梹城是马来亚一个主要的艺术中心。独立前,艺术家们结社成立了各自的艺术团体並自觉的推动了艺术活动。五十年代群众的艺术鑑赏熱诚不高,也没有具规模的画廊,但梹州艺术協会展现了毅力,推动一甲子的艺术活动。这股精神是可嘉的,

今天,槟城的文化艺术发展蓬勃。乔治市里的画廊,音乐表演及文学都吸引人。壁画及雕塑品可在乔治市街头巷尾及轉角间。新的溝通工具如iPad及智能手机把乔治巿街头艺术品傳僠到世界每一个角落。梹城成了吸引国内外艺术家創作的摇藍。

我再次肯定槟州艺术協会历屆同仁的努力,为槟城及马来西亚的艺术历史留下美丽的纪录。


Message from Chairman of Penang State Museum Board
YB Wong Hon Wai

I am delighted to contribute a message to the publication of Art Book in conjunction with the 60th Anniversary of Penang Art Society.

The establishment of Penang Art Society in 1953 confirmed the importance of Penang as the
art centre in Malaya, During the pre-Independent period, artists were involved in the formation of various art societies and grouping. Artists served voluntarily in them. Art activism was seen in 1950s despite the reality that art appreciation among the lay persons were considerably low and there were no proper venues for art.

Today, we have a vibrant art scene in Penang. The revitalization of George Town heritage enclave can be seen by many art galleries, musical performances and literary festivals. Murals and street sculptures are mushrooming in George Town. Modern gadgets and tools like IPad and smart phones have helped propagating new interests in the street art. Penang has been the venues for many enticing art exhibition and artworks by local and international artists and will continue to be the fertile hub for the art in this region.

I wish to commend the effort by the Penang Art Society for publishing this anniversary book which document the development of art in Penang and Malaysia.
