Mountains and Waters: Landscape Paintings from China

September 21, 2013 - February 2, 2014

Western art lovers have long extolled the characteristic use of "negative space" representing the mists through which, beyond which, and under which mountains in Chinese landscapes are often portrayed. Those nature paintings are also noted for their seemingly impossible crags, unsurpassed dramatic waterfalls, intimate scenes of trekkers, monks' and scholars' retreats, and lone, but commanding, pines perched on inaccessible peaks. Local KIA patron Joy Light curates and presents Chinese paintings from her personal collection.
