Campus and Community Invited

Posted: October 18, 2007
Artwork by Chinese students and lectures by their professors will be at Buffalo State College for the campus and community to enjoy as part of the ongoing student art exchange program between Buffalo State and Capital Normal University (CNU) in Beijing, China.
The student art exhibition, which runs from Oct. 25 to Nov. 6 in Upton Gallery, will feature 120 CNU student works, including graphic design, oil painting and traditional Chinese painting. Accompanying lectures by CNU art professors Xueting Hao (graphic design), Wei Chen (oil painting) and Yan Bai (traditional Chinese painting) will be held Oct. 30 from 12:15 to 2:30 p.m. in Upton Hall 203. A reception will follow at 6 p.m. in Upton Gallery. The campus and community are invited. All events are free.
Next month, Buffalo State College art students will display their work at CNU. Lin Xia Jiang, professor and chair of the Fine Arts Department, and Richard Ross, associate professor of design, who traveled to Beijing last summer to curate the students' works at CNU, are coordinating the program with support from Ted Turkle, director of the Research Foundation at Buffalo State College, and Benjamin Christy, dean of the School of Arts and Humanities. All will travel to Beijing for the opening reception.
