慶祝香港恒生大學成立藝術設計系 – 許焯權教授水彩畫速寫展覽

On 16 July 2020, a simple yet solemn ceremony was held at the Library of The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong (HSUHK) – the opening of the Exhibition of Watercolour Sketches by Professor Desmond Hui in Celebration of the Establishment of the Department of Art and Design at HSUHK. Professor Desmond Hui explained the theme and contents of the Exhibition as a collection of his sketches during travels in the past 6 years. The pandemic lockdown for the last half year has created a common longing of people for travelling and his exhibition hopefully would provide an alternative escape as a spiritual journey to the viewers’ romantic destinations – whether in Barcelona, Majorca, Provence, Tuscany, Scandinavia or even Sai Kung and the outlying islands near Hong Kong.
