March Gallery Exhibit

UK Confucius Institute

Friday, March 17, 5:00-8:00 pm
FREE & open to the public

The UK Confucius Institute presents “Ink Elegance,” an exhibition of works by UKCI painter Li Jian and her students. The exhibit is part of the LexArts Hop evening on Friday, March 17, from 5-8 pm at the Carnegie Center, 251 W. Second St. Li Jian will offer a calligraphy demonstration and traditional Chinese music demo at 6:00 pm.

The exhibit presents traditional Chinese ink paintings in freehand style. The freehand style emphasizes rich brushwork and brilliant colors on Chinese Xuan (rice) paper. Included in this exhibition are the artist’s works of calligraphy in the style of “running script” to show the power and elegance of the strokes.

Jian Li was born in Shandong Province, China, and started studying painting at the age of three. Since 2014, she has worked as a Chinese painting specialist for UKCI, teaching Chinese painting classes to UK students and K-12 students throughout Kentucky.
