Chinese Brush Painting Exhibit by Tracie Griffith Tso
Exhibit Dates: December 6 – January 4, 2018
Tracie Griffith Tso painted her first bamboo brushstrokes as a child at a brush painter’s studio in California. The award-winning artist, who specializes in traditional spontaneous flower, bird and animal painting, developed her style with a teacher schooled by a Hong Kong master. She learned to throw pots at age 12 at a neighborhood art center, a skill which, when combined with painting, produces functional clay art. She specializes in the freestyle drawing of animals. Her subjects include koi, rabbits, squirrels, Siamese cats, birds, horses, frogs and more. Tracie uses traditional ink on rice paper to create images with bamboo-handled, wolf-hair brushes. She is the Chinese brush painting instructor at the Reston Community center. She is a Torpedo Factory Art Center Associate Artist and a member of the Kiln Club and Washington Ceramic Guild. She lives in North Reston with her husband and workshop rabbit and muse, Cleo. Visit inksart.com, Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook for information, images and videos.
