Hailey Shin opened Gallery Jeeum, Discovery Bay’s first art gallery, in DB Plaza in February 2020, with no clear idea of what the pandemic might bring. She set out to create a bridge between art and the community – a much needed cultural hub – and DBers have responded enthusiastically.
The exhibitions at Gallery Jeeum change every month with a focus on local artists, as well as Hong Kong-based expats like American abstract artist Tyler Jackson Pritchard and Yulia Shautsukova, a Russian-born DB resident.
“In celebrating our second anniversary, I would like to share our joy with friends and neighbours who have been such heartwarming supporters of the gallery,” Hailey says. “We can’t have a birthday party but I hope readers will enjoy looking at these event highlights.”
