Life cultural heritages, like the exquisitely cut paper, the visually impactful folk artwork and the enchanting Chinese calligraphy and ink paintings, were on display during the May Day period at an art exhibition in Intangible Heritage Museum of Shangcheng District. The exhibition was co-sponsored by Hangzhou Federation of Literary and Art Circles and Hangzhou Municipal Committee of the Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese Kuomintang.
This year marks the hosting of the 19th Asian Games. To celebrate the coming sporting events, the exhibition sponsors garnered fine artworks in variegated styles that could best represent the essentials of the city’s folk art.
The exhibition collected close to 120 rural-style paintings, paper-cutting works and calligraphy and traditional ink paintings of folk artists and celebrities. Paper-cutting masters Song Shenglin, Qiu Yifeng and Wu Sulian (the top-rated splash-and-dye paper-cutting master), folk painting artists Liu Qiaoyun, Xiang Honghong and Zhou Huanqin, and noted calligraphy and painting masters Cai Yunchao, Ruan Zhenya and Wu Yaqing contributed their recent works for the exhibition.
The exhibition will remain free opened till May 20. All visitors are requested to strictly observe the epidemic-control rules, including personal health code and body temperature check at the entrance and wearing face mask all over the exhibition space.
