Mr. Yung Ho-yin Chinese Calligraphy Exhibition

“Great cold” often indicates the coldest day in a year. It is the last phrase in the 24 solar terms in which Chinese people outline a year for living and agricultural production based on the distinctive weather and climatic system. This year the “great cold” fell on 20 January but to everyone’s surprise, the day was filled with sunshine and warmth. Such a spring-like day was perfect for the opening ceremony of Mr. Yung Ho-yin Chinese Calligraphy Exhibition held at S.H. Ho College.

The opening ceremony took place on the ground floor of Chan Chun Ha Hall. The officiating guests included Ms. Peng Jie, Director, Department of Publicity, Cultural and Sports Affairs, Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the HKSAR; Dr. Sze Chi-ching, Chairman of Chinese Calligraphers Association of Hong Kong; Prof. Fok Tai-fai, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of CUHK; Prof. Josh Yiu, Director of Art Museum, CUHK; Prof. Samuel Sun, Master of S.H. Ho College; and Mr. Wat Tze Chun, representative of S.H. Ho College Student Union. In the exhibition, 40 works by Mr. Yung were featured.

The College celebrated its 10th anniversary last year. Closing on March 10, this exhibition was one of the highlighted celebratory events. As a steadfast supporter to the College, Mr. Yung wrote the College name carved on the plaque in both sides of Chan Chun Ha Hall. He also helped cultivate an art atmosphere in the College by donating his calligraphy works and holding workshops. Mr. Yung is a master of “seal”, “clerical”, “cursive”, “running” and “standard” scripts. In recent years, he initiated a modern ink-painting script. His creative spirit is in line with the College’s vision to cultivate creativity in students.

Mr. Yung serves as an affiliated fellow at S. H. Ho College. His works have been collected by Qinghai Provincial Museum, Hong Kong Museum of Art, Princeton University Art Museum, etc.
