2008 - SOUTH AFRICA TRIP TO CAPE TOWN FOR OUR ART COMPETITION WINNER, YI YANCUI

ART IN THE RIGHT PLACE


The idea of an art competition was initiated by Dr Harold Riley, the Founder Patron of the Lowry Gallery. Dr. Riley supports Imibala and is deeply connected to All Hallow's Roman Catholic School in Salford, Manchester, UK from which teachers came to work at Somerset West Methodist Primary School, and began to raise money in order to improve the quality of the school.


The subject chosen by Dr. Riley for that year was ‘Dogs'. Individual countries, including China, UK and the US were invited to participate in the touring of the exhibition of the art pieces. The Rush Foundation of New York was invited to send in drawings done by disadvantaged pupils taught by Meredith McNeal, in New York and the final exhibition was at the Salford CityArt Gallery in Manchester.


As for China, the Teacher of Ten Thousand Generations Foundation which supports underprivileged children through assisting education was also invited to participate. Two schools, the Lianshan Foshan Hope School and the Lianshan Jitian School participated and 25 paintings from the students thereof were awarded prizes. To promote creative minds in China and support the charity, Shanghai Tang very kindly sponsored an exhibition of some of the children's art in its Hong Kong and Beijing stores.


The winner from China, Yi Yancui (Lianshan Foshan Hope Primary School) was lucky enough to be flown to Cape Town (South Africa) to meet our Foundation's President.

ART EXHIBITION IN HONG KONG

From June 14 to 27, 2008, Shanghai Tang and the Teacher of Ten Thousand Generations Foundation unveilled an exhibition of drawings from a children's art competition to raise funds for children who cannot afford to attend school in China. A limited-edition notebook has been created for the occasion with proceeds going towards the education programme. The exhibition was held at the Shanghai Tang flagship store in Pedder Building, Pedder Street, Central.

On June 14, the winner of this art competition, Yi Yancui attended the opening ceremony in Hong Kong. Shanghai Tang put her art on the cover of the notebook featuring 21 of the drawings.

“My drawing refers to a folk tale from the Yau and Zhuang ethnic groups,” said Yi Yancui, 11, of Lianshan Foshan Hope School. “When I heard that the theme was dog, I thought of this story immediately.”

Yancui rendered her dog blue and the landscape purple-pink, and even included Chang'e, the Chinese folk tale princess who flew to the moon after swallowing an immortality pill.
