Selecting exhibits for Galeriasia's show Passage To India was difficult, says curator Sally Lai, as she wanted all the paintings - their styles and colours - to complement each other. She also had to keep her choice diverse enough to be interesting. Lai achieved both aims, with Jai Zarotia's fascinating The Face, which features some mythical figures, and Sushila Bodade's paintings which are in the same style as that of the award-winning Santosh Varma, who is also exhibited. The result is a collection of oils and acrylic on canvas that is bursting with energy and in vibrant colours. Sourced mainly from Delhi, seven Indian contemporary artists feature, including Buwa Shete's Mother and Child (pictured right). Until June 17 at 6/F One Lan Kwai Fong. Tel: 2529 2598. Free. The two talks not to miss this week are by two local artists with very different backgrounds. Bing Lee is an art administrator working at New York's Visual Arts School. Known for his expertise in administrating public art, hopefully his experience will encourage the local development of this art form - which is non-existent in Hong Kong. June 26 at Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre Lecture Hall. Contemporary ink painter Choi Hoi-ying, who won last year's Hong Kong Contemporary Arts Biennial Exhibition fine art award, will share his three-month experience at Freemans Studio in Vermont (where he won a scholarship). June 16 at the Visual Arts Centre's Multi-purpose Function Room. Both talks are organised by The Confederation of Hong Kong Visual Artists and start at 6.30pm. Admission is free for confederation members and $50 for non-members.
