Pelita Hati celebrates 19 years of contributing to Malaysian art from tomorrow onwards, with an exciting exhibition “19…since 1995” by 25 artists, some who have been with the gallery since it opened the doors in 1995:

Pelita Hati is recognised as a nurturing ground for artistic talent. The gallery has been continuously involved in the recognition and promotion of emerging talent, creating an awareness of art amongst old and new collectors by showcasing good quality art works and providing a platform for interaction between artists and collectors.
The launch event for the exhibition also coincides with Pelita Hati’s book launch: “This is not an Art Book”.
This is a visual narrative of Pelita Hati’s journey as an art gallery. Cherished memories, the success, the sold out exhibitions, the tragedies, the creative ideas and the hopes and dreams of artists, are presented through a collection of invitation card designs of past exhibitions, photographs and newspaper clippings.
“This is not an Art Book” brings the gallery to a new chapter, and reaffirms that Pelita Hati Gallery of Art – a Malaysian contemporary art gallery is here to stay.
