About the Event

 

Works by noted artists Janny Huang and Joseph Yan of  The Pine Studio together with several of their students reveal San  Francisco Botanical Garden through the lens of traditional Chinese  painting. "The Garden is an endless source of beauty and amazement, and  an inviting challenge to a painter," say Huang and Yan, "so it was  natural that we would one day want to organize an exhibition of works  about the Garden and its inspirations through the lens of Chinese Brush  Painting."

The exhibit showcases the Garden in a range of  classical styles from a grand landscape of the Great Meadow to a set of  detailed images of magnolias, all reflecting the prevailing styles of  various Chinese eras. 

In addition to paintings by Janny Huang and Joseph  Yan, A Classical Eye features works by: Yetta Allen, Marilyn Bancel,  Martha Cheung, Eileen Lai, Miki Pan, Teri Reina, Michelle Tsao, Li Wang,  Nikky Wang, Katy Yan, and Petty Yao.
