Maya Gallery has relocated to a new space! Our home is now at 57 Genting Lane #05-00. Thanks to you, our artists, collectors and friends, for your kind support since we first started in 2012. Each move comes with new vibes and we are excited to continue our journey with you.
Do look out for our upcoming exhibitions in the coming months, where we feature our treasured artists and introduce new talents.
Amidst the move, we continued to uphold our commitment to community projects. Maya Gallery is proud of the appointment of our gallery cofounder and director Masturah Sha'ari as Chairperson (Working Committee) for Voices & Visions, the fourth edition of the Singapore Women Artists Exhibition. Organised by the Federation of Art Societies (Singapore) in conjunction with International Women's Day, the exhibition showcased more than 100 Singapore female artists with works ranging from painting and batik to ceramics. Held from 5–8 March 2021 at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre, Voices & Visions also featured iconic artists such as Chen Cheng Mei, Lai Foong Moi and Rosma Mahyudin Guha who have greatly contributed to the local art scene.
In Heroes of our Time, an exhibition paying tribute to frontliners in the battle against Covid-19, our gallery cofounder Jeffrey Wandly was one of the 18 artists who contributed to the making of the key artwork. Similarly titled "Heroes of our Time", this huge painting measuring 1.8 x 3 m was presented to the National Centre for Infectious Diseases. Co-organised by the National Healthcare Group (NHG) and Singapore Art Society (SAS), Heroes of our Time was held from 13–17 March 2021 at ION Art Gallery. The exhibition featured more than 200 artworks by SAS artists, students and migrant workers.
As members of the Angkatan Pelukis Aneka Daya (Association of Artists of Various Resources) or APAD, Masturah and Jeffrey are participating artists in Kontemporari 2021, a virtual exhibition by APAD, currently on till 6 April 2021. You can view both the virtual show, featuring artworks by Malay artists who are APAD members, and video of the Artists Talk on APAD's Facebook page.
Last October, Maya Gallery launched our own virtual exhibition, Building Whisperer Alam Maya, a solo show by Jeffrey Wandly, where he captures landmarks and spaces we have inhabited and visited in Singapore. These spaces become part of our visual memory, along with the emotions from our encounters with(in) them. A collaboration of visual art, architecture, music and heritage, Alam Maya is set in a double-storey shophouse setting, inspired by our first gallery space in Kampong Glam. With the support of the National Arts Council, the virtual show can be viewed from your laptop or mobile in the comforts of your home! #SGAnywhere
