美國東方藝術協會國畫展開幕式 - 古箏及書法表演

The Association of Oriental Arts was founded by Ms. Iweeta McIntosh in 1979 at the time when she was teaching Chinese brush painting at South Methodist University (SMU). The Association has periodic exhibitions and seminars to learn and share Chinese brush painting and to study the underlying principle of Oriental Brush Painting - the philosophy of TAO.

Every year the Association has exhibitions and seminars at Jaycee Park Center for the Arts and The Irving Arts Center. I was referred to this Association in January, 2006 by Chinese brush painters Wendy Lin ( 林伊文 ) and Maria Shieh ( 謝鳳蓉 ). Since then we have been working together for several times.

美國東方藝術協會: 在德州達拉斯大都會區的歐文市有一個由美籍人士組成的東方藝術協會(THE ASSOCIATION OF ORIENTAL ARTS),該會成立於1979年4月,由 Iweeta McIntosh 女士召集一些中國畫愛好者組成,該會每年有二次向各地邀請國畫名家來舉辦國畫講座及授課,平常也定期有國畫課程,會員們常組團到大陸杭州美院進修中國畫,每位會員都齊全的文房四寶。每年一月初,他們定期在歐文市的藝術畫廊舉辦年度展,由全體會員提供一年來之精心創作,聯合展出。在海外,能有如此多美籍人士,醉心於中國繪畫藝術,且學有所成,展示出來,真是直得大家前往欣賞、捧場,給予鼓勵。


Many thanks for Ms. Jane Downs, the current president of The Association of Oriental Arts (Tao Arts),

for inviting Anita and me to demonstrate Guzheng and calligraphy. Ms. Iweeta McIntosh and her husband also came.


The famous Guzheng performer Anita Hu ( 胡紅援 ) is a national treasure of China.
