This day trip to Zhongshan in China’s Guangdong province is a joint activity of HKUFAAA and Hong Kong Potential Expressionism Art Association 香港昊天藝術協會 (HKPEAA). The itinerary began with a morning ferry ride and upon arrival, a visit to Wan Fung Art Gallery 雲峰畫苑, where the group enjoyed a welcome lunch. Dr. Kwok Ho Mun 郭浩滿博士 gave a thorough tour at the gallery and later across town at the Museum of Chinese Architectural Woodcarving in the Ming-Qing Dynasties 明清建築家居木雕藝術館, the highlight of the day. On display in this museum was a full range of decorative wood-carved pieces, such as beams, corbels, windows, doors, and beds etc. Stunning in form, rich in contents, these artifacts of superb quality continued to overwhelm viewers from one chamber to another. After dinner, the group took an evening ferry back and ended this first trip of HKUFAAA outside Hong Kong.
