Maya Gallery is a contemporary art gallery located in Singapore’s eastern Ubi district. Supporting the development of contemporary artists with a focus on Singaporean and Singapore-based artists, the gallery liaises with curators, institutions and organisations to introduce international artists to Singapore, and Singaporean artists to the world. By holding a regular programme of exhibitions, activities, designing and publishing catalogues, and participating in international art fairs, Maya Gallery has in the space of eight years contributed strongly to the development of the contemporary art scene in Singapore.
The gallery was voted Top 10 Art Galleries in Singapore in 2018, and awarded the Recommended Art Gallery at the Expat Living Reader Awards in 2015, Best Asian Contemporary Art Gallery of the Year 2014 by National Critics Choice, and described as a gallery which has won the hearts of art enthusiasts with its locally flavoured exhibitions (mydestination.com) in 2014.
Upholding a social responsibility, Maya Gallery engages the public in creating an awareness and appreciation of local arts. The gallery offers workshops, learning journeys, art activities and corporate art retreats to promote team-building and bonding for corporate organisations, institutions and groups. It works with charities to help them in their fund-raising efforts through curating of art auctions. We also give talks, produce music performances, host book clubs and film screenings.
Founded by Jeffrey Wandly and his wife Masturah Sha’ari through a shared passion for the arts, Maya Gallery was officially opened by Ms Janice Koh, former Nominated Member of Parliament (NMP) for the Arts, in historic Kampong Glam in 2012.
