It gives me great pleasure in writing this message to commemorate the opening of Maya Gallery.

I am delighted that Maya Gallery has opened in the historic district of Kampong Glam. From Arabic cafés to crowded jazz pubs, from vintage collectibles to local fashion designers, the influx of many modern businesses in the area today has brought new life to this part of Singapore. Art spaces like Maya Gallery have a role to play in rejuvenating our historic neighbourhoods and in enriching the cultural life of our city. Stepping into the gallery, away from the hustle and bustle, we reflect on the stories told by our artists and our artisans. We find the quiet within ourselves to connect with a world much bigger than our own. It is a different yet unique way of breathing new life into old places.

I am also very pleased to see such a diverse range of Singapore and regional artists, both established as well as emerging, being represented at Maya Gallery. In Singapore, private art galleries serve as important platforms to showcase and promote the work of our visual artists, allowing their works to be appreciated by local and international visitors alike. It is certain, from the high quality work being showcased at this opening exhibition, that Singapore has no shortage of talented artists in our midst.

I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to Masturah Sha'ari and Jeffrey Wandly, the owners of Maya Gallery, for their vision and commitment to supporting the local art scene and providing us with much nourishment for the soul.
