Welcome to Art Market Malaysia, a platform for artists, be they amateur, professional, disabled or otherwise, as well as those passionate for the arts to gather together, communicate about and enjoy a diverse range of visual arts.
Taking place at the National Visual Arts Gallery on Jalan Tun Razak, the event will not only host a variety of exhibitions, but also offer crafts workshops, competitions, indoor games, a meet-and-greet with artists, drawing contests, gambus and choir performances and a lucky draw with fabulous prizes.
The exhibitions will include ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, carving, and design in fabric including printmaking and batik.
The event was designed to help push and promote the Malaysian arts scene, which is still in its nascent form compared to that of its European counterpart where it enjoys a longstanding heritage well preserved and appreciated in each country. In Malaysia, the arts are appreciated only by a few and Art Market Malaysia was created to raise the standard and provide local artists with a stage to present their work to the masses.
Through the years, Art Market has helped create awareness by organising corporate events, street level events, art exhibitions and via social media campaigns. By doing so, many undiscovered talents have been found, that would otherwise not have come forward. Unfortunately, many of these are still not receiving the support and attention they deserve.
Art Market Malaysia strives to assist local artists as much as possible, to help them realise their creative vision and set them on a successful career path. To make this happen, the organisation needs the help and support of the country to push forward its agenda.
Come to Art Market Malaysia from 27-31 August to support the cause and check out what’s currently happening in the local art scene.
