China’s fine art traditions, practices, and imagery can be linked to each significant political moment of its history, reflecting and responding to the mainstream political ideology, expectations, and academic discourse of the time. The exhibition Dong Yifang: Painting Through a Century of Change in China explores this connection through a visual survey of the life’s work of Chinese ink painter Dong Yifang as he finds his artistic voice through three distinct periods of Chinese history. This exhibit features the life’s work of Chinese artist Dong Yifang. Work by Dong’s teacher, Qin Zhongwen, and student, Wang Yani, will also be on display. Opening reception will be August 31 at 5:30PM. Ringel Gallery is open 10-5PM, Monday - Saturday, and 10-8PM Thursday. All Purdue Galleries exhibits and events are free and open to the public.
