2016 Hong Kong International Students’ Art Competition

Coverage and photos from the 2016 Hong Kong International Students’ Art Competition, of which gallery owner Mark Blackburn was a judge.
 
One of Mark’s memorable quotes in his opening remarks on behalf of the adjudicators:
“Today in America we have an entire generation who has not been raised with art from a very early age due to cutbacks and the general lack of understanding of the importance of art in life. Such depravation has led to an entire generation (the millennials) who are drifting lost, in part because they have been robbed of having been exposed to art during their formative years. Without art and culture, a human being cannot be deemed to be complete in any shape or form and is a different creature because of it.”
