Artist, 10, holds exhibition for charity


Few can claim to have held their first art exhibition at the age of seven. Yesterday, CHIJ (Kellock) Primary 4 pupil Ashley Ann Tan (above), now 10, opened her second exhibition - Seasons Through My Eyes - at The Pavilion in Far East Square.

All proceeds from the event will go to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund.

The centrepiece could well be Success (above), dedicated to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, who made Singapore "one of the world's best countries", said Ashley. It took three hours to paint and four days to dry.

The exhibition is open to the public today from 10am to 5pm.
