A Brush with Nature Exhibition
1 July - 28 September
This exhibition features a collection of Chinese watercolours by artist, Rong-Gen Yin. Originally from Shanghai, Rong-Gen Yin began painting in the traditional Chinese manner in the 1970s. He moved to Northern Ireland in 2003 and has continued to paint and teach traditional Chinese painting techniques since then. Rong-Gen’s work embraces the two main techniques of Chinese painting – Gongbi, where intricate brushstrokes form detailed coloured landscapes, which can include narrative themes and Xieyi, which is much looser using bold brushstrokes and watercolour wash.
Supported by The Northern Ireland Museums Council and funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
Monday 12 August, 11am- 1pm & 2-4pm
Following his successful inaugural exhibition of Chinese watercolour paintings last year, artist Rong-Gin Yin is exhibiting his new collection in four museums across Northern Ireland in 2019. To coincide with his exhibition, there will be workshops where you will learn from observing his demonstrations in traditional and contemporary styles. You will enjoy producing your own Chinese paintings in ink and Chinese water-colours. All materials are provided.
