State-of-the-Arts Gallery, which used to be situated on Hollywood Road, has found its new residence on another classic street in Hong Kong – Pottinger Street, better known as “Stone Street”, which is famous for the granite stone steps with a remarkable history of over a century years old. With the new address, the Gallery now stands at an eye-catching point on the sidewalk along the historical steps, surrounded by antique shops and the old Central Police Station, as well as overlooking a quiet park. As the new location suggests, the Gallery is proud to position itself as an independent, ‘state-of-the-arts’ gallery promoting works of worldwide sources, with an emphasis on the quality of artwork, instead of the origin of the contributor, thereby distinguishing itself from the cluster of trendy galleries in Central selling contemporary Chinese arts.

The geographical move aims to draw visitors’ attention to the monthly exhibition, which has long been a special feature of State-of-the-Arts Gallery. The three-storey new shop with a high ceiling enables visitors to appreciate the Gallery collection in a more comfortable, but not less classy environment. Descending from the stairs on the ground level to the basement, visitors could view the exhibits in an artistic space resembling a cellar of a castle. The Art Consultancy office on the second floor also serves as an elegant space for display of art samples, and a cozy meeting room for project discussion with artists and clients.

Since it was founded in 2003, State-of-the-Arts Gallery has organized numerous exhibitions, charity functions and special events for an array of artists worldwide. It started with promoting Austrian arts with more than twelve contracted artists. In several years of time, the Gallery has rapidly established itself as a contemporary international fine arts gallery featuring artists from countries across continents: from Austria to other parts of Europe like France and England; and from Australia to remote Latin American countries including Mexico, Chile and Columbia. The Gallery offers purchase, lease, or commission for a variety of artwork including paintings, sculptures, artistic photographs and glassware. All artworks are selected within the parameter of high quality and collection value. Selected works share the common characteristics of conceptual originality, thematic consistency, and refinement in techniques as sharing the artists’ self-cultivation and philosophy of art has always been our priority aim at promoting commercial art.

It is hoped that following the move, both geographically and symbolically, State-of-the-Arts Gallery would also move on to a new chapter of prosperity by bringing more significant contributions to the art community in Hong Kong. Visitors would find a greater sense of enjoyment through a delightful art-walk in the new residence and at the same time, recognize its taste, characteristics and professionalism when appreciating art in the Gallery relaxingly.

位於荷李活道的State-of-the-Arts畫廊現遷址至香港另一條歷史名街 – 砵典乍街 – 即石板街。石板街因以石塊鋪蓋路面而得其名,已擁有百多年歷史。新店坐落於石板街一個當眼位置,鄰近幾家古董店,旁邊有個小公園。正如新店獨特的地理位置顯示,畫廊以定位獨特,重視質量見稱,保留一貫的當代藝術風格和國際形象,令State-of-the-Arts畫廊有別於一眾聚集在SOHO區的中國當代藝術畫廊。每月的定期展覽一向是State-of-the-Arts畫廊的特色,遷址後,此特色更將成為畫廊的焦點。樓高三層的新舖樓底極高,讓參觀者可在一個更舒適而不失優雅的環境裡欣賞藝術展品。沿地面的樓梯能通往下層擁有大量代理畫家作品館藏的陳列室,令參觀者有如進入一座地窖尋寶室的感覺。

State-of-the-Arts畫廊自2003年成立,為世界各地的藝術家在本港組織過無數展覽、慈善活動和特別項目多達五十次以上。畫廊一開始以推廣奥地利藝術為主,已擁有超過12個合約畫家、雕塑家。在短短幾年內,迅速發展成一間獨當一面的當代國際藝術畫廊,發掘表現各地風俗色彩的藝術品:從奥地利到其他歐洲國家如法國、英國等; 從澳洲延伸至北美洲和一些遙遠的南美洲國家,如墨西哥、智利、哥倫比亞等。畫廊提供不同系列的畫、雕塑、藝術照片、玻璃等各種藝術品的購買、租借和訂造服務。畫廊內的所有藝術展品都經過精心挑選,以確保展出的作品無論在概念的原創性、主題的連貫性和技巧的精煉度上都達到一定水準、貫轍始終。正正表達了她在推廣商業藝術的同時,始終以分享畫家個人的藝術修養和哲理為首要的考慮。

State-of-the-Arts畫廊希望遷址後展開生氣勃勃新的段路,繼續揭力為香港藝術界作出更多元化貢獻,讓參觀者在欣賞高質素藝術品的同時感受到她專業而有個性的一面,嘗心悅目之餘又有閒情和賓至如歸的親切感。
