Monthly Archives: February 2009


Hong Kong’s art and cultural landscape has recently undergone a renaissance, from the art auction rooms to the international acclaim of local artists. Galleries are blossoming and a sense of excitement, long associated with just the hallowed streets of downtown New York, is gathering locally and internationally
about Hong Kong’s potential as Asia’s art capital.

Now, Hong Kong art galleries in Central, SoHo, and Sheung Wan, have come together to bring a sense of community, education and easy accessibility back into art. On Sunday 8th February, these art galleries will open from 11am – 5pm for Art Sunday, continuing on the first Sunday of the month thereafter.

This free event will allow families, friends, neighbours and those out for a leisurely Sunday afternoon, to engage with art, chat to their local gallerists, and listen to talks about art and artwork. Children will be able to participate in creative workshops and learn about art in a fun and interactive environment.

Local cafes and restaurants will join in sponsoring the event, providing brunch and drinks for local participating galleries and Art Sunday promotions for the day.

With over 20 galleries and a number of local restaurants participating, Art Sunday guarantees something for everyone and is a wonderful way to support Hong Kong’s art community.

Art Sunday – continues in 2009: dates are 8 February, 5 April 2009, 3 May 2009

Was out on an off-camera flash shooting session couple weeks ago and saw this piece of gear from one of the guys.  It’s the Hoodman HoodLoupe Professional which is great for viewing pics out in daylight where it’s hard to view much off the LCD screen.  Spent a week shopping for it in town but no luck. End up odering it from HedlerUSA for US$76.99 plus US$29.25 for shipping.  The version I got is the 3.0 specifically for 3-inch LCD screen.
