First Tuesday in February 2018 at the Walters Cultural Arts Center will celebrate the wonderful work of Yong Hong Zhong in his exhibit “Experience Nature”.
This exhibit explores the restlessness and beauty of nature through the deep presence and awareness of painting en plein air—the act of painting outdoors from direct observation. Engaging all the senses of the artist, these paintings translate moments of intense and sometimes fraught connection between artist and landscape. Zhong’s collection is a beautiful homage to the everyday splendor that surrounds us. Zhong formerly was a digital layout artist with Walt Disney Animation Studios, where he worked on such well-loved films as “Mulan”, “Pocahontas”, “The Fox and the Hound 2” and “The Princess and the Frog”.
There will be a special Artist Talk at 6:00pm: Yong Hong Zhong will share stories & perspectives on the exhibit.
Live music performed by Olivia + Rene (Mandolin Duo)
