Chinese Brush Painting by Q Li Holmes

As part of the Big Read Program the Friends of the Amherst Library will present the works of Four Contemporary Chinese Brush Painters for its October art exhibit. Brush painting remains the traditional Chinese style and has been in existence for thousands of years. Using watercolor, ink, calligraphy, and seals (a stamp, unique to each artist) on rice paper or silk, it captures the spirit of the subject or scene in nature with a minimum of brushstrokes and balanced use of space.

Each of the following artists bring various levels of modern influence to this style: some very traditional and some pushing the boundaries of the tradition. While all are native to China, they now make their homes in New England.

After growing up in China, Yahong Shen received her doctorate from Harvard School of Design and has made Chinese Brush Painting her passion for many years. She now teaches Chinese painting and drawing in the New England area. Yahong Shen will present a demonstration of Brush Painting at the library on Tuesday, September 25, from 6:30 to 9:00PM. All are welcome but registration is required. You may register online or by calling the library at 672-6063.
