Time Required: 1 - 2 hours
In the words of Thomas Merton, "Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time"; and the contemporary city-state of Singapore seems to live by this quote. The entire city is dotted with wonderful galleries at every corner, exquisite sculptures near riverbanks, and beautiful street art lining the alleys. To admire the mesmerizing Singaporean Art in all its glory, the Cape of Good Hope Art Gallery is the ideal place to be. Established in 1989, the main objective of this splendid gallery, located at 231 Bain Street, is to showcase and promote the emerging Singaporean talent. Acting as a platform to display the artwork of several second-generation Singaporean artists, Cape of Good Hope has been hosting frequent exhibitions and participating in art forums and fairs since the beginning, and today, it has become one of the pioneering art galleries of the nation.
Cape of Good Hope houses outstanding art pieces by renowned artists, a few of them being Chieu Shey Fook, Choy Weng Yang, Ling Yang Chang, and Ang Ah Tee. It discovers new homegrown talent incessantly so that they can carry the torch of the future of the ever-evolving Singaporean Art. The prime motive of this prestigious gallery is to create an innovative space for artists and art lovers to visit and to promote the uniqueness of the Singaporean Art by displaying some of the finest art pieces and helping the amateur artists to shine.
Apart from exhibiting the unique masterpieces of budding Singaporean talent, Cape of Good Hope also doubles as an art consultancy firm, providing efficient services to corporate institutions as well as private collectors and advising them on caring for and restoring artwork, and assisting them in expanding their collection.
