JBU Hosts Premiere Exhibit of "Glimpses of China"

Siloam Springs, Ark (September 1, 2000) — Beginning Monday, Sept. 4 through Friday, Sept. 22, JBU will host the works of Zhang Shu-Wen (pronunciation shung shoe-one) in his exhibit "Glimpses of China." This is the first time the artist’s works, unique in that they are oil on paper, have been shown in the United States.

Zhang Shu-Wen’s critically acclaimed landscape paintings are of various provinces across China. The artwork was created during the "Cultural Revolution" when the artist was sent out from Shanghai to experience and artistically record the lifestyles of the farming and working poor.

The public is invited to view this exhibit Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. Those interested in hearing the artist speak are invited to his presentation on Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 6:30 p.m. There is no charge for attendance.

The exhibit and presentation is located on the concourse of the Chapman Administration Building on the campus of John Brown University. For more information, call JBU Public Relations at 524-7212.
