A free art exhibition featuring Singapore's creative talents will be open to the public till Nov. 26.

This is the third edition of the annual Temenggong-SG-Creatives show.

It will be held at a colonial house at Temenggong Road, organised by Temenggong Artists-In-Residence.

Temenggong Artists-In-Residence, founded by Singapore artist Henri Chen KeZhan, is a private non-profit charity that manages art residency programmes and provides free arts exhibitions and events.

With the theme of "Expressing Heritage: The Presence of Memory", the exhibition is inspired by the Chinese phrase "不忘初心" which serves as a reminder to not forget one's original intention and to fulfil this intention.

It reflects the charity's mission of supporting fellow artists and the arts projects.
