The Macao Annual Arts Exhibition, organized by the Cultural Affairs Bureau to promote local visual arts and encourage home-grown talent, has been counting with the participation and active support of many local artists for several years. In 2013, the exhibition was divided into the “Chinese Painting and Calligraphy” and “Western Media” categories and has since then been calling for applications for each category, in alternate years, giving artists from different fields more opportunities to show their talent and encouraging them to submit works rich in local characteristics and explore even more possibilities in the realm of artistic creativity.
The 2015 Macao Annual Arts Exhibition is dedicated to Chinese Painting and Calligraphy, including seal carving and experimental ink wash. The exhibition features 74 rigorously selected artworks by local artists which reflect the current status of Chinese painting and calligraphy in Macao.
