The Center for Chinese Art at William Paterson University in collaboration with Art Department, University Galleries, and College of Arts and Communication, will host exhibition, symposium, Chinese mounting workshop and a Chinese Painting Demonstration, during the exhibition: Play Ink- Ink Play period especially for CCAF festival.Chinese opera painting exhibition explains this special phenomenon of modern Chinese ink painting in a quite reasonable way that artists take opera as a specific object of sentiment, and bestow it with freedom of expression. This exhibition displays the opera figure paintings created by some outstanding Chinese painters, such as Guan Liang, Lin Fengmian, Huan Yu, Cheng Shifa and Ding Liren. Their works usually take consideration about cultural elements of opera as theme to express themselves and their thoughts about life. There are also some artists using opera’s symbols to pursue renovation of modern ink painting’s patterns. The combination of opera and ink art brings more freedom of emotion and imagination not only to the painters but also to the audience.

This exhibition is highlighting the printmaking program of William Paterson University, showing the printmaking work of our students, focusing on the media of etching. Most of the works are from the current Fall 2012 semester, but some selected pieces are from our former students. The Printmaking program of William Paterson University is one of the best-equipped and most innovative programs in New Jersey. Our program aims to provide teaching of the traditional printmaking techniques such as copper etching, as well as to develop the new media “Blue Film” etching with our students. We want to educate in the excellent culture and knowledge of traditional printmaking, but we also strive to develop new courses to update our curriculum and keep up with the modern trends and techniques. More than 30 works presented in this exhibition showcase etching techniques from the past up to the most current production of printmaking, and show how our students have followed the printmaking tradition and make it contemporary.
