The Rui Cunha Foundation presents the exhibition “Artistic Calligraphy and Painting Works of the Women Associates”, celebrating the first anniversary of the Macau Women Calligraphers, Painters and Sculptors Association, which took place on March 24. It brings together 34 pieces made by 33 female artists from Macau.
These works seek to convey “the active and passionate role of the Macau women towards traditional Chinese culture”, according to the president of the association, Hong San San. They also highlight the reality that is being experienced today at a global level, as several pieces “very clearly express the idea that resilience and a positive spirit are the determining qualities in times of crisis and adversity”.
The most recent works were even the subject of the association’s first virtual exhibition – “Ode to the Heroes of the Fight against Pandemic” – held online on February 25, which paid tribute to the men and women who were on the front lines in defense of the health and safety of the population.
The Macau Women Calligraphers, Painters and Sculptors Association is a non-profit organization, founded in March 2019 by the current president, Hong San San. The basic principles for its constitution are the establishment of an exchange platform for women artists and the gathering of means for learning and researching the theory and the practice of such craft. The project also intends, through the constant consolidation of artistic techniques and the organization of various periodic events, to promote the dissemination and to contribute to the sustainable development of traditional Chinese culture, in terms of its preservation and diffusion among future generations. The current exhibition is open until June 13 at the Rui Cunha Foundation Gallery.
