美國 丘策濱 祝賀「以畫會友」網站成立20周年紀念

丘策濱
一個網站能維持運作20年不容易,一個純以藝術為宗旨,不靠任何商業廣告來支撐而存在的網站更是困難。吳國明先生主辦非牟利的「以畫會友」網站,成功地創立了20年,不能不說是個奇蹟。

「以畫會友」網站非但提供香港畫家展覽自己畫作的平台;還給予其他國家和地區畫家顯示各人作品的機會。

歷年來「以畫會友」為推廣多元繪畫藝術的發展,該網站接納了各流派的畫家。其展出作品既有布局嚴謹,用筆精細的描寫;也有構圖獨特,手法豪放的表現;更有立意深奧,風格迥異的創新。真可謂百花齊放,百家爭鳴。

「以畫會友」在港澳是個頗受人歡迎的網站,在國內、台灣乃至歐美國家也不乏觀眾的欣賞。正如吳先生在網站首頁所說:「不須著意求訪客,自有知音網上傳」。

向「以畫會友」網站成立20周年,致以熱烈的祝賀。

In Commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the Founding of the K. M. Ng Internet Art Gallery

Any website being able to sustain itself with no commercial supports for a reasonable duration is not an easy task. However, the non-profit K. M. Ng Internet Art Gallery, created by Hong Kong artist-programmer Mr. Ng Kwok Ming, has successfully been in service for the past 20 years, is a great achievement.

The K. M. Ng Internet Art Gallery not only gives Hong Kong artists a chance to exhibit their paintings, but also provides a platform to artists from other parts of the world, to show their artworks free of charge.

Ever since its inception, the K. M. Ng Internet Art Gallery has always been in the forefront of promoting the art of painting—representational and abstract alike in both Eastern and Western styles. Because of this, it has become a very popular website in the art community.

2015 marks the 20th anniversary of the founding of the K. M. Ng Internet Art Gallery. On such occasion, I want to congratulate Mr. Ng on his contributions in promoting the advancement of painting.
