Ning Zhou Gallery

WANG XIN YONG EXHIBITION “LOVE LETTERS TO NATURE”
UPCOMING AT NING ZHOU GALLERY

Ning Zhou Gallery of Laguna Beach, CA is proud to announce that it will host an exhibition of twenty-nine paintings on rice paper by prominent Chinese artist, Wang Xin Yong, from April 5 – 12, 2018. The artist will be in attendance at the show’s Opening Reception which will be held Thursday evening, April 5th, from 
6 ~ 9 pm – a must-see stop on April’s First Thursdays Art Walk.

Like Ning Zhou Gallery’s well-known namesake, Wang Xin Yong is from Nanjing, China. Paintings on exhibit will showcase his insights into the nature and cultural landscapes experienced during his extensive sojourns in the United States over the last decade. Although firmly rooted in traditional Chinese painting and calligraphy techniques having studied at the Nanjing Arts Institute and China’s Central Academy of Fine Arts, Wang’s work also is infused with Western influences. Using traditional Chinese paint and inks as well as watercolors, his ink-and-wash technique has clearly been influenced by the accurate modeling, textural expression, colors and brushwork of Western painting. Whether inspired by a squirrel, an adobe church or a woods, these “love letters to nature” are ingenious amalgams of East and West, full of charm, quietude and warm-heartedness.

Wang is a member of the Artists Association & Calligraphers Association in Jiangsu Province, Chairman of Jiangsu Micro Technology & Culture Co. Ltd, Executive Vice President of the US Jiangsu General Chamber of Commerce and Deputy Director of the Culture and Arts Commission of the US Jiangsu General Chamber of Commerce.

He has held many exhibits and workshops in Beijing, Nanjing, New York, Santa Fe, J. Wayne STARK Galleries in Texas A&M University, Brazos Valley Art Center, Asia Study Center in Michigan State University.

Terry DeLapp, “By Merced”, Acrylic on Canvas – 24 x 32 inches

The Redfern Gallery

Terry DeLapp

Terry DeLapp is a modern-day Tonalist, recognized for his evocative depictions of the central coast of California. His choice of motifs–the farms and ranches of the Salinas and San Joaquin valleys.  The depth of DeLapp’s unique style comes from as he puts it, his “love and concern for the land and what is on it.”  In addition to the landscapes this exhibition also features Delapp’s intimate still-life paintings.
