Installing a master's work
You may have already noticed, but there is no installment of "In The Classroom" this week. I do hope you enjoyed last week's information-filled post on Chinese inventions that changed transportation. Stay tuned for next week's "In The Classroom"!
This Saturday, June 15, Calligrapher and Brush Painting Artist, Shantien Tom Chow, will be at the museum for the opening of his new exhibit, Life Force without Limit: Calligraphy & Brush Painting of Shantien Tom Chow. I know I have said this before, but I must say it again, this is one show you don't want to miss! In addition to seeing 55 of Chow's beautiful masterpieces, and getting to meet the maker in person, Chow will also give a demonstration of his calligraphy and brush painting on large-scale, 9x6 feet scrolls.
As special treat, here's a sneak peak at the exhibit as it was being stalled.
