A Classical Eye: Chinese Brush Paintings of the Botanical Garden from the Teachers and Students of The Pine Studio
Time & Location
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.
