Held at the Chui Huay Lim Club’s Heritage Hall, the exhibition presents Chinese paintings and calligraphy artworks by Hong Kong artists Mr Alfred Cheung (張樹榮) and Mr Wong Wai Ho (⿈偉豪) which are up for auction.

The service is provided by AlDigi Technologies, a member of the ONERHT ecosystem of multidisciplinary professional services.
The free exhibition opens to the public from 6-8 February, between 10am-6pm. An opening ceremony will be held at 10am on Monday 6 February 2023 at the venue, and the Guests-of-Honour for the opening ceremony would be A/Prof Ho Peng Kee, Patron of ONERHT Foundation, Mr Ng Hoy Keng, President of Chui Huay Lim Club and Mr Aw Chye Wee, Chairman of Ee Hoe Hean Club.
