She said that the works on display include watercolor painting, acrylic painting, oil painting, ink painting, mixed media painting and ceramics. 

She pointed out that 10 years ago, female painters were not common. Many of them held multiple jobs and had to take care of their children for housework. Some had to take care of family and career. Usually, they didn’t have much time to paint. The more full-time female painters, it also means that the works of female artists are willing to listen. 

She said that the exhibition was held to provide a platform for women artists to display their works and to communicate with women artists from various countries. Compared with male artists, women artists tend to express their inner and life expressions. 

Yeoh Soon Hin, chairman of the Penang State Tourism Development, Monuments, Culture and Arts Committee, delivered a speech on behalf of the Penang state chief Chow Kon Yeow, saying that through this event, local artists and culture can be displayed to foreign artists, and the local characteristics and tourist attractions of my country, especially Penang, can be introduced.

她指出,在10年前,女画家并不普遍,很多都身兼多职,又要照顾孩子做家务,有者还要兼顾家 庭和事业,平时并没有太多时间画画,庆幸现在越来越多的全职女画家,也意味女艺术家的作品 受到肯听。 

她说,举办该展览是提供女性艺术家一个平台展示自己的作品,以及与各国女艺术家交流。女性 艺术家与男性艺术家相比,作品更倾向内心和生活上的表达。
