Fond Memories of Ipoh: Hume Street Art Gallery

Hume Street Art Gallery – Near Old Mosque

In old town Ipoh opposite the old Mosque existed a fine Gallery

The owner and partner were members of Perak Fine Art Society with no salary!

Artists come and go since here since this was the centre for Ipoh Art

Parents brought their children for classes and learn how to draw to start!

The nearby Mosque was one of their favourite subjects to paint

Equally, the “Lorry Jungle” gave inspiration, but no place for a Saint!

Alas our Artist friend died penniless due kindness, stolen paintings and no fame

Today the Gallery is closed and new owners do their business but not same!
