This exhibition is the first of its kind to grace the banks of the Hudson. Works by fashion guru and scenic painter Mark Cheung, by founder of Dongjiang painting school and Dean of China Hakka Painting Academy Mr. Zeng Sheng, and by famous Chinese painter and master of embroidery Ms. Liao Chunmei, will be on display, amongst many others. Two of the show’s featured artists—Mr. Huang Yue, founder of Flower & Bird Oil Painting, and Mr. Wu Huan, painter and calligrapher—will be in attendance for the show.

Asian Art on The Hudson’s organizer, Ms. ‘Christine’ Gong Tingyu notes, “A unique feature of this landmark exhibition is the way in which it positions contemporary art from a non-Western culture on the beautifully serene banks of the Hudson. We believe in the power of an‘art exchange’ to advance global civilization and understanding. Culturally distinctive art forms often communicate universal themes and truths in the most powerful way. We are very excited to bring this large body of Asian art to Germantown.”
