The two ceramics exhibitions opened in February have attracted much attention. Many colleagues and students commented that the exhibits and the gallery spaces are unique, stunning and beautiful.
We have arranged a number of extended activities that complement the exhibits. These include Gallery Tours, Demonstrations on Hand Pinching Technique (手擠坯示範), and Talks on A New Era of High-Temperature Wood-Fired Ceramics (高溫柴燒新紀元講座) & Learning Chinese History through Your Hands (可觸碰的中國歷史講座). Not only were these activities part of some course requirements, they were also approved HLTH1010 programs. Feedback is very positive, with almost all willing to join similar Library events in the future.
We would like to thank the Division of Humanities, specifically Prof Billy So, Prof Flora Fu and Prof Anna Kwong, for collaborating with us to make these programs a success.
In April, the Library will stage an exhibition on Chinese Calligraphy by The Jiazi Society of Calligraphy
(甲子書學會), one of the most notable calligraphy societies in Hong Kong. Titled “Confucian, Buddhism and Taoist Selections
(儒釋道哲理精選)”, it will showcase around 65 calligraphies by members of the Society. The Opening Ceremony has been scheduled for 24 April at 4:30 pm in the Ping Yuan and Kinmay W Tang Gallery, G/F of Library. A talk and demonstration by Dr Chui Pui-chee (甲子書學會學術執委徐沛之博士) and members of the Society, and a guided Gallery Tour, will also be held on that day. Watch for a future message with details!
