Graceful lotuses, plum trees and bamboo stems abound in Fall In Love With Art, an exhibition of about 100 paintings at Wisma Atria which is on until Oct 28. Each work is priced from $500 to $20,000 and proceeds from the sales go to The Straits Times (ST) School Pocket Money Fund. The exhibition is organised by non-profit arts organisation Life Art Society and features works by 54 artists. Eighteen of them are ST subscribers who in June took part in Chinese brush painting classes at Singapore Press Holdings' News Centre. The classes, taught by master painter Tan Khim Ser, were organised by ST as part of the ST+ news with benefits programme for subscribers. Tan, 75, is a noted artist and art educator who started the Life Art Society 45 years ago. He has taught thousands of amateur and aspiring artists, including former National Arts Council chief executive Lee Suan Hiang and former senior minister S. Jayakumar.
