Tallahassee Chinese Art Exhibition Series
Since the summer of 2012, Dr. Nan Liu, Associate Professor of Drawing & Painting (link to faculty page) has curated five Chinese Art exhibitions at our Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery. This exhibition series has been a collaborative effort involving the Chinese Association of Tallahassee and the Foster-Tanner Fine Arts Gallery, Visual Arts program, and FAMU community.
The exhibition presents extraordinary Chinese talent and aims to enrich the Chinese culture in Tallahassee’s local community. The exhibition includes artwork created by both local Chinese artists and visiting artists from China. The art media and techniques include traditional ink and brush painting, calligraphy, prints, photography, paper cut, sculpture, ceramic, embroidery and silk.
From 2012 to 2017, the visiting artists from China were: Xuxuan Ye (2012), Wenzhong Zheng (2013), Yuxiang Yang (2014), Lei Zhu (2014), Jun Zhao (2015), and Yongjing Zhang (2017). Typically, at these exhibitions, the opening reception involves a gallery talk by the visiting artist or art demonstration of traditional Chinese calligraphy and brush painting.
This event attracts hundreds of visitors every year at the opening reception. It is one of our major multicultural showcase exhibitions for the FAMU and Tallahassee communities. Previous opening receptions and exhibitions
