A new portrait by renowned artist Alastair Adams gazes out at the award-winning building that its subjects helped create.

The new artwork has been placed in the College with views of Avery Court and the WongAvery Music Gallery that sits within its peaceful confines. 

It depicts Sally WongAvery and her daughter Natasha Wong in the Robin Hayes Room- the room in which the portrait is hung. Also featured (in the form of a photograph on the windowsill behind them) is Sally’s late husband, Dennis S. Avery (1980), who was: an alumnus of the College; a founding Member of the Avery-Tsui Foundation; and the namesake of Avery Court. In front of them on a table sits an architect’s model of the music gallery and a miniature dragon.
