Exhibition coordinator Quah Siew Kim said the art pieces were a testament to the society members’ love, passion, dedication and invaluable contribution to the art scene.

“We adhere to our vision, which is to create awareness about oil painting among the younger generation so that they will come to love and appreciate oil painting.

“Our mission is to also give oil painting artists opportunities to exchange ideas and to keep progressing,” said Quah, who read the speech on behalf of her husband, society founder and president Woo Seng Non.
