Visualizing Virtue
Open Reception &
Art Gift
Saturday, June 20 | 4 PM | Silk Road Art Gallery, 83 Audubon Street
On Saturday, June 20, at 4:00 PM, the Silk Road Art Gallery will host an opening reception for its newest exhibit, “Visualizing Virtue,” a solo show of the bird-and-flower work of Chinese brush painter Wu Jianfeng. The exhibit will be shown for only three days (6/20-6/22), while Mr. Wu is in New Haven.

The artist will attend the opening to introduce his work and answer questions. The opening reception is free; refreshments will be served. Each attendee will also receive a gift of xuan (rice) paper fan adorned with Mr. Wu’s bird-and-flower art.

The exhibit can be viewed on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (6/20-6/22), from 10:00-6:00.

Wu Jianfeng is a noted brush painter from China’s coastal Fujian Province, China. “Obsessed” with traditional Chinese brush painting, particularly birds and flowers, Wu paints in a style that conveys peace, elegance, and an imagination that is simultaneously mature and childlike, realistic and fantastical.

The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public. Parking is available across the street (15 minutes), a block down the street (up to 2 hours), and in the LAZ parking garage at 78 Audubon Street (closes at 6:00 PM).
