Seven new members of the Society are invited to participate in the 43rd annual exhibition, include Peggy Chan, Michelle Fung Kuen Suet, He Jilan, Paul Pang, Raymond Pang, Wong Wing Tong, and Malone Yuen.

Art Experience Gallery who shares the same vision and goal to nurture young artists and cultivate the local art scene, is honoured to co-present this exhibition with VAS. Throughout the works shown in this exhibition, each artist speaks a strong and unique dialogue of their cultures and identities, embracing the passion for life and creation, and translating inspirations into their own visual languages.
