Chinese Scholar Exhibited Artwork During Semester

On October 28, 2010

Visiting scholar Dr. Lian Wang from Yangzhou University in China exhibited her artwork in Winfisky Gallery last month.


Wang's paintings are created using traditional Chinese brush with Mo ink on cotton paper. Her paintings often reflect a Chinese Taoist emphasis on natural beauty. Based upon this Chinese foundation, Wang also incorporates painting techniques from other countries, such as an Indian Buddhist focus on expression of the mind and a French Impressionist use of color. As a result, her paintings are Chinese in their essence but global in their outlook.

Wang is currently an Assistant Professor at Yangzhou University of China and Visiting Scholar at Salem State University. She received her Ph.D. from Southeast University of China, has published more than 20 academic papers and has participated in many national and international academic conferences.

In 2010, Wang was invited to participate in the New England Historical Association's annual meeting, where she presented her paper "The Study of Chinese Painting History in the United States for the Twentieth Century."  Wang's award-winning paintings have been included in many art exhibitions in China and abroad.  She has also published a book of her paintings entitled "Wang Lian Chinese painting works."
