Exhibition Dates: 13th to 21st May 2017, 12pm – 8pm

Starting from 13 May to 21 May, from 12pm-8pm daily.

Beginnings – a pottery exhibition in support of the Singapore Cancer Society, is a celebration of renewal following a broken experience by ceramist Ong Hwee Suan.

Ms Ong Hwee Suan is a cancer survivor, and had three surgeries that stripped 174 lymph nodes from her, but while that is a permanent loss, she will be bringing all of them back in the exhibition “Beginnings”. Suan took her inspiration from the bean-shaped lymph node and it became the basic form for the collection of 174 creations that will be on display at “Beginnings”, which are also symbolic of the loss and the blessings that resulted from her experience.

Come down and join Suan at “Beginnings” to toast to a fresh start after closure, and see the tribute to people – families, friends, doctors and nurses – who walk side-by-side with cancer patients.

We have encountered brokenness in our lives. We have choices for surmounting setbacks. Some choose to stay in the brokenness; some simply stay in denial; yet others accept the fate and let light enter through the cracks – only to discover that following adversity, there is illuminating beauty.
