Virginia Maksymowicz is Back from China






I'm back from China! Will have lots of stories to tell.

In the meantime, here's a photo for the blog. I am posing with Christopher Zhu (striped shirt) who is the former deputy director of the Shanghai Art Museum and an advisor to the Metropolitan Museum in NYC on Asian Art, and Professor Rick Kent, who is an historian of Chinese art at Franklin & Marshall College. We are at the opening reception (July 5th) of the exhibit, "True Words," of wood carvings by a collective of deaf Chinese artists who live in Shandong province, held at Kun Gallery in the Suzhou Creek district of Shanghai (the main art district). We are bringing some of the works in this show to the US for exhibit at the Phillips Museum at Franklin & Marshall in February. I will be writing an essay for the catalogue.
