Painting With Heart: Chinese Peasant Paintings from Shaanxi Province

Painting with Heart:
Chinese Peasant Paintings from Shaanxi Province

Exhibit and Sale
October 22–November 25, 2011

Opening Reception Saturday, October 22nd, 2-6 pm

Sun Gallery Chinese Art and Antiques
presents a unique collection of colorful peasant paintings from Hu County in Shaanxi Province, China, October 22 through November 25, 2011.
It was seventeen years ago when Sun Gallery owner Jenny Sun first saw the colorful paintings of Hu County, near Xi'an, and immediately fell in love with this lively "peasant art" style.
The artists are everyday people without specialized art training, who paint as a hobby. The joyous and simple bright colors and designs of these paintings capture the themes and motifs of daily life in rural China, truly capturing "the heart" of the people.
China has changed dramatically since that time, even in the rural areas. The folk arts commonly practiced—papercutting, sculpture, painting—have now been collected by individuals and museums, as peasant life has modernized.

Rocks, Stones, and Boulders: Inspiration from Chinese and Japanese Gardens


    As you prepare for gardening season, you might wonder how Chinese and Japanese gardens use the "fruit of the earth"—rocks, stones, and boulders, in creating the mulit-faceted symbolism of nature and poetry alike.
    To help get you started, Sue Bagge, master landscape and floral designer, will present "Rocks, Stones, and Boulders: Inspiration from Chinese and Japanese Gardens," Thursday, April 7th, 2011, 3–4 p.m. at Sun Gallery. Her lecture will feature slides that show public Chinese gardens in Portland, famous gardens of Japan and the Thai garden in Madison, and how she has used stones and boulders in local gardens.
    Sue is owner of Sungro, Inc, and is a landscape horticulturist  with a strong interest in Asian design. Having studied in Japan, she enjoys the challenge of working with stones and boulders to form the backbone so needed in northern gardens that are green just five to six months of the year.
    Enjoy Chinese refreshments and take advantage of our sale on Scholar Rocks and Garden Stones!  Then, stay for Northrup-King Building's First Thursday events, when artist studios and galleries are open to visitors, 5–9 p.m.
    We are located in the Northrup-King Building in Suite 451. The building is located at 1500 Jackson Street NE, in the heart of the arts district. Open every Saturday, 12–4 p.m., and the first Thursday of every month, 5–9 p.m., or by appointment. Call us at 612-822-6388.
