You break it, you buy it

Tonight I attended a gallery opening for a Contemporary Studio Glass Exhibition that Fraser Suites sponsored in conjunction with the Singapore Arts Festival. 'Round the Coyote it is not, but I have to admit that besides the art, part of the draw of attending an art opening is always the free cocktails and the chance to talk to some of the artists.

Glass is such a fragile medium that I'm not quite ready to explore fully yet, but at least the exhibition exposed me to a new place that I have not yet visited in S'pore, the Arts House, which is Singapore's oldest surviving government building. The Arts House only re-opened about a year ago and is a base for art happenings and developing new talent.
