Last January 29, The Gonzales Family celebrated Chinese New Year and attended the event by Chan Lim Family of Artists and Students "Meet the Artists - Behind the Brushstrokes" at SM North Edsa - The Block .
As everyone are excited and eager to know more about Chinese art, we are also thrilled to meet the students and family of Chan Lim present at the event.
Chan Lim family of artists and students have prepared more than 300 artworks done in porcelain plates, scroll and oil paintings. The exhibit is participated by 43 talented artists and will be held from January 15 to February 12 at The Block Atrium of SM City North EDSA.

The Chan Lim family is one of the few remaining notable Chinese brush painting artist in the country today, and is sought after in this field. Art classes are conducted in the family studio located in Pasig City. Their paintings can be found in private collections here and abroad.
The Chan Lim brothers are graced with a unique combination of artistic talent and engineering aptitude. In the past four decades, the Chan Lims have been actively involved in the arts. Professionally, each of the Chan Lim brothers was able to carve a niche for themselves, holding key positions in multi-national companies. Currently, there are already three generations of the Chan Lim family actively involved in the arts.
