Wu Xian Sheng Exhibit Opens in Jewett Gallery

An exhibition of the work of Wu Xian Sheng will be on view in Jewett Gallery from March 26 through April 19, with an opening reception on March 27 at 4:45 pm.

Wu Xian Sheng is a Chinese artist known for his figure paintings in ink on paper, which capture both realistic representation and spirit. In his Yi national series, he presents a group of large format portraits of Yi people from the Sichuan province. The solid forms, varied shades, and vivid lines and textures are all present in his masterful brush strokes. Wu is currently a professor of Chinese painting at the China Academy of Fine Arts in Hang Zhou, China. He has exhibited internationally, including at the Jean Marc Gallery in France, the Tai Zhou Museum in China, and the Asian Art Center in Taiwan.
