15 Clarke Street is the blue shop house located at 15 Jalan Sultan Abdul Jalil, 30450 Ipoh. This row of shop houses was built by my grandfather Mr Leong Sin Nam. I had my early childhood at the corner lot which is now a hair salon.
This shop has been renovated to house the Leong Sin Nam Exhibition Hall at the 1st Floor. I have allowed YMCA Lahat Road to use the ground floor as its activity centre until the opportune time when they can purchase their own building on Lahat Road.
Please visit the YMCA website at www.ymca-lahatroad.org for more information about its vision and mission in Perak.
YMCA Lahat Road is willing to provide free space and a helping hand to any charity or non-profit organisation to showcase their causes and programmes which are of benefit to the local community.
Our first exhibition will be held in collaboration with Urban Sketchers (Ipoh Chapter). This exhibition will be the first event at 15 Clarke Street. There will be about 80 drawings by 20 artists on display during the exhibition. There are two workshops to get everyone started on sketching. There will also be sales of postcards, sketches and paintings. A portion of the sales proceeds will be donated to the Good Shepherd children’s home.
The exhibition will be held from April 15 to 23.
