Evening at the Museum: Members Reception & Opening of the Exhibition
To celebrate art and friendship, members are invited to join us for an Evening at the Museum to coincide with the opening of the exhibition The Fame of Flame: Imperial Wares of the Late Ming Period. This reception promises to be a fun event for members to meet other members over wine, hors dӯeuvres and music amidst the lovely art collections exhibited in the picturesque University Museum and Art Gallery (UMAG). This event is also one way of saying “thank you” to our members for past support.
About the Exhibition
The Fame of Flame: Imperial Wares of the late Ming Period will feature over 120 pieces of imperial wares dating from the Jianjing to the Wanli periods, chosen from the collections of the University Museum and Art Gallery and local private collectors.
The Museum is elegantly situated in the Fung Ping Shan Building and the lower three floors of the TT Tsui Building. The Fung Ping Shan Building, originally donated to the University by Mr. Fung Ping-shan in 1932 for a Chinese book library, was converted into the Fung Ping Shan Museum of Chinese Art and Archaeology in 1953.
With further extension into the TT Tsui Building in 1996, the Museum changed its title to the University Museum and Art Gallery and remains one of the oldest and most distinguished museums in Hong Kong, housing over one thousand items of Chinese antiquities in ceramics, bronzes, paintings, Chinese oil paintings, as well as carvings in jade, wood and stone.
