翁美玲遺作展
影迷睹物傷情

倫敦唐人街在十一月上旬的文藝活動中,展出「翁美玲慈善遺作展」吸引了大批中外人士駐足,許多不知翁美玲爲何人的外籍人士都盛讚她的才藝,待聽取了有關阿翁的事跡後,又爲她的輕生搖頭嘆息。

翁美玲生前愛藝術,遺下了素描,設計,紡織,陶藝及攝影作品一百四十餘件,都由翁母捐借出來,而這次慈善遺作展所募集的基金,將以「翁美玲教育基金」名義捐給中文學校,鼓勵向學的靑少年。

「突然失去囡囡(翁美的小名),對我是一個沈痛的打擊。」翁母在展出期間,強忍着痛失愛女的悲傷,打起精神來爲阿翁做這件有意義的事:「前些時候的種種傳言該告一段落了,我想最能使囡囡欣慰的是再爲這個世間多做些事。」

展出期間適逢在英國演唱的梅艷芳,立刻出價訂下一幅阿翁的作品:「阿翁是我的好朋友,這樣的慈善活動,我絕對要支持的。」梅艷芳在會場上見了阿翁的畫像,有點兒睹物傷情,購畫籌款也算她對好友所盡的一份心意了。
