Chinese Artists in the US: Plein Air Painting in North American National Parks

September 6 – October 13

Artist presentation, Light Recital Hall: Friday September 7 from 5 – 7 pm, reception follows in the Gallery

This fall, visiting artists Wang Guisheng, Li Jiaduo, Linxia Jiang, Zhen Wei and Gu Zong will exhibit plein air landscape paintings created during a month long period of travel in the U.S. The artists will start painting in Whitewater and nearby areas and will be inviting faculty, students and community members to join them in field. Works from these outings will provide the foundation for the works on display in the Crossman Gallery’s first show of the semester. After a week, the artists will depart traveling across country, visiting national parks and creating traditional Chinese scroll paintings for the exhibit. Upon their return, they will participate in an immersive residency within the Department. Over the course of their stay, the visiting artists will present illustrated lectures on contemporary and traditional Chinese landscape painting, and provide painting and drawing demonstrations for students and the community.

Opening: Monday, October 22 from 5-7 pm

Internationally recognized photographer Art Shay (1922-2018) will be featured in this show organized from his archives. Shay served in the US Air Force as a bombardier during World War II. Following the war he worked at Life magazine and then went on to a career as a freelance photographer. His photographs have been published in major magazines including Sports Illustrated, Life, Time and other national publications. His sports images include vivid photographs of the Green Bay Packers during the Vince Lombardi era, heavyweight boxing champion Mohammed Ali, President John F. Kennedy and actor Marlon Brando.

Shay was also interested in life on the streets and this passion produced many images showing the people going about their lives in everyday circumstances.

During the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago, Shay captured on film the street demonstrations and conflicts between protestors and police and National Guard forces.
