This exhibition took place on July 7- August 11, 2012.
Chairman of the Painting Exhibition Committee, Irwin Albert Maengkom, said the painting exhibition aimed at preserving Bali as the home of painting and raising funds for the completion of the construction of the MBSB church as well as commemorating the church anniversary. “At the closing of the exhibition, there will be an auction of painting by the painter Made Wianta,” said Irwin.
