Catch Two Art Exhibitions in Kuala Lumpur

If you like Art, here is a chance to catch two art exhibitions in Kuala Lumpur. One is of Ecuadorian art, the other Batik art by a German batik artist.

Besides the Galapagos Islands, little much is known of Ecuador and her heritage in terms of arts and culture. Here is a chance for Malaysians and visitors alike to know more about Ecuador's rich heritage of arts and culture.

In an effort to promote this rich heritage, Eastin Hotel Petaling Jaya has joined hands with the Embassy of Ecuador and City Art Gallery to organise an Ecuadorian Art exhibition.

The recent launch saw the ambassador Lourdes Puma Puma launching the event at the hotel’s Ee Chinese Restaurant.

The Ecuadorian Art exhibition is held at Ee Chinese Cuisine Restaurant Eastin Hotel, Petaling Jaya until April. On display are also Ecuadorian handicrafts and musical instruments made from bamboo and cedar wood such as the quena, quenacho, pan flute and cedar flute.

Ecuadorian food is also available a la carte, priced from RM35++ onwards.

The other exhibition you might want to catch is a solo exhibition by an internationally-recognised batik artist from Germany, Joachim Blank. The exhibition is held at TMS Art Gallery in Taman Melawati.

Some info about the artist:

He was trained in Jogjakarta, Indonesia, in the 1980s by well-known artists Amri Yahya and Ardianto.

For the exhibition, Blank is featuring 11 pieces of batik art, some with double layers with cotton and organza to create a 3D effect.

The solo exhibition is on until March 30.

TMS Art Centre is located at No 301, Jalan Bandar 11, Taman Melawati, Kuala Lumpur. For information, call 03-4107 5154 or fax 03-4108 5154. (TMS Art Centre is located just in front of Malaysian Institute of Art and beside Sakura Kristal restaurant.)
