Chinese art exhibition, a great success
Over 150 people packed the Welcome Swallow Gallery on the opening night of the exhibition, Chinese Art, Inheritance & Innovation. Artists Yong Ming Liu, Dejin Lu and Jing Liu saw several of their paintings quickly adorned with red dots, with 30% of the exhibition selling within the opening hour.
MC for the evening, Trust Board Member Clive Gilson thanked the corporate sponsors of the event, Pack & Send, while also highlighting the growing footprint of the Trust and it’s commitment to raise funds for children leading incredibly tough lives. On behalf of the artists Jing Liu shared her own ‘art journey’ that brought her to this exhibition while also taking the audience through the methods of Chinese painting.
With beautiful Chinese music floating in the background, the crowd lingered for some time after the speeches and the plates and wine had been consumed. A fabulous night.
