Xing Wen’s paintings of the Yi and Tibetan ethnic groups in China are displayed in this February exhibit. Indigenous to China’s Southwest mountain ranges, the cheerful and hardworking Yi are known for their beautiful cultural dances in which they don gorgeous headdresses adorned with gold, silver, and colorful stones. These specific paintings are made with Chinese ink and pigments on traditional Chinese rice paper. Xing Wen graduated in 1982 from the Academy of Fine Arts of the South West University of China and has been teaching in Fairfax for more than fifteen years.
Also featured in this exhibit are the works of Mrs. Xing’s students, young artists ranging in age from five to eighteen years old.
