Iconic Landmarks Of The World

More than 20 landscape paintings by Singapore artists will be featured at this exhibition organised by artcommune gallery and AC43 gallery. The exhibits include pioneer artist Lim Tze Peng's 1980s to 1990s ink paintings of early Singapore and Balinese landscapes as well as watercolour artist Ong Kim Seng's lyrical works of sun-basked Tibetan and Nepalese scenes.

The exhibition looks at the age-old genre of landscape painting and showcases how that genre plays out in the works of Singapore artists.

Tine Thing Helseth - Arutiunian Trumpet Concerto

Norwegian trumpeter Tine Thing Helseth performs for the first time in Singapore with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra. The concert will feature trumpet showpiece Arutiunian's Trumpet Concerto, which is a vigorous display of Armenian lyricism and flavour.
