5pm to 12midnight

This year was the 12th successful year of the ever-popular charity art event: Hong Kong ArtWalk. This year on 14th March, 66 galleries from SOHO, Wan Chai, Sheung Wan, Central, Aberdeen and Happy Valley areas of Hong Kong Island, showcased a range of visual arts into the late night for newcomer and veteran artwalkers alike.

The ArtWalk benefiting charity for 2012 was, as last year, the Society for Community Organization (SoCO) – last year, a donation of HK$400,000 was raised from tickets sold from ArtWalk and donated to SoCO. Since the first ArtWalk began in 2001 over HK$5 million has been donated to Hong Kong charities.

Moon Gallery was proud to be, again, a part of this year’s ArtWalk. The night was booming with a vibrant buzz. Large crowds of artwalkers strolled in and out of the gallery right up until the very last moment at midnight. Guests enjoyed the contemporary works of Chinese, Korean, and British artists. Visitors were impressed by the vast space of the gallery and the night was filled with people from a variety of backgrounds exchanging their favourite pieces along the ArtWalk route.
