Singapore, 30 January 2018 – The Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) ushers in the Lunar New Year with a greeting card and two sets of red packets featuring artworks by local pioneering generation artists, including Chen Chong Swee, Lim Hak Tai and Georgette Chen.
The red packets feature Chen Chong Swee’s Orchids Composition and Lim Hak Tai’s Peony, while the greeting card features Georgette Chen’s Purple Orchids. The high-resolution images of these works were provided by the National Gallery Singapore.
With the Lunar New Year around the corner, SCCC hopes to take artworks out of the museums and make art more accessible to the public through these specially designed festive collaterals. SCCC also hopes that this will allow more Singaporeans, especially the younger generation, to have a deeper appreciation of Singapore’s pioneering generation artists and their contributions to the local art scene.
Members of the public can win a set of red packets by participating in the SCCC’s Facebook and WeChat quizzes from 31 January till 9 February 2018. All winners will be notified and can collect their red packets at SCCC at 1 Straits Boulevard.
