Doors for the opening reception will open at 4:30 pm and a tour of the exhibition by the artist will begin at 5:00 pm. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. Please contact GTI Program Assistant Jonathan Lin (email@example.com) if you have questions or concerns. Kindly RSVP by July 24.
“Taiwan, a Beautiful Landscape” depicts landscapes throughout various parts of Taiwan, with a focus including but not limited to the island’s diversity, architecture, culture, ecology, and humanities. Taiwan is about the size of the state of Maryland and Delaware, and has diverse geological features ranging from mountains to plateaus to basins. Taiwanese artist Ku Chin Yi (Temi Minu) based his works on the element of ink wash painting, an East Asian type of black and white brush painting, combined with the addition of colors, perspectives and techniques of Western paintings. His style of Taiwanese modern color ink wash painting was developed in the early 1980s in Taiwan and has become a modern artistic style among contemporary artists. The opening reception on July 26 will include a guided tour of the paintings by the artist.
We are grateful to the Taiwan Academy, Ministry of Culture, Taiwan for providing resources to the GTI cultural programs series.
