Linden Gallery opened a new exhibit of paintings by Master Artist Jove Wang on Thursday, July 2. An opening reception is scheduled for Sunday, July 5.
Wang, born in northeast China and trained at the prestigious China Academy of Art and Tokyo Academy of Fine Arts, now lives in California; however, he makes frequent visits to his native country to teach and paint. The award-winning artist is renowned for his portraits, landscapes and street scenes, injecting a lyric, calligraphic brush stroke into the oil painting tradition.
Wang is a highly popular teacher and has mentored painting workshops around the world. One of his favorite students, Karen Cook, will be sharing her experiences on Sunday, July 5 at 4 pm as part of the opening reception. Cook is a graduate of Kewaunee Academy of Fine Art and has painted with Jove in China and Russia.
The Lindens will be hosting a Plein Air Painting Tour at their Yunnan Centre in October and will be on hand to share information about their innovative China complex.
The Linden Gallery is located at 12001 Mink River Road, Ellison Bay. For more information, call 920.854.2487 or visit http://www.linden-centre.com.
