I had the most wonderful visit with Agnes, Lydia, and Agnes's husband Shiang-Yu! Agnes and Lydia curate shows for The Green Spot Tea Shop in Tacoma, and I showed them my work and talked with them about a possible show while Shiang -Yu fixed us some lunch.
After lunch, Shiang-Yu gave me a tour of their art collection and introduced me to work by Artists new to me. I wrote down names so that I could learn more about them. Professor Liu Kuo-Song and Chang Da Chien studied both Western and Chinese art and thier work, while still very Chinese, reflects some Western inspiration, I particularly liked Both Sides of the Mountain, and Heaven Lake, by Liu Kuo-Song, and some wonderful abstracts and impressionistic work by Chang Da Chien. I think one of the pieces in Agnes's house, the Dancing Lotus, was by Liu Kuo-Song.
Now I am inspired to try some more impressionistic work and landscapres on silk!
