The Fine Arts and East Asian Studies departments are pleased to announce a student art exhibition,Spirit Resonance. This exhibition contains art works in different media created by students in Ying Li's course "Chinese Calligraphy as an Art Form."
The title of the show, Spirit Resonance, is from the Six Principles of Chinese Painting, written by Xie He, a writer, art historian and critic in 6th century China. It became the standard an artist should strive for in his or her art. Spirit Resonance or "Vitality" is the first and the core principle among the six. It refers to the energy transmitted from the artist into the work, the overall energy and spirit of a work of art. Xie He said that without spirit resonance, there was no need to look further. This spirit resonance flows beautifully through the works in this show. Our student artists have given it a new meaning.
The exhibition will take place at the Alcove Gallery on the ground floor of Magill Library. It will run from Thursday, May 2 to Sunday, May 19.
Opening reception: Thursday, May 2, 4:15-5:30 p.m.
