The Linda Matney Gallery, Landmark Art and Cultural Exchange Company and the Peninsula Fine Arts Center are collaborating on a series of events coming to the Hampton Roads area in February featuring six prominent Chinese artists. The exhibit brings artists from China whose work is not usually shown in the United States, to present a meaningful cultural expression and explanation of contemporary Chinese art, and to promote cross-cultural understanding and awareness through art and travel. These events will present a window into the contemporary art world in China and how art is interpreted through civilization.
Marketing is central to this community event. A collector’s catalogue will be published of the visiting artists and their art. An opening, and two “Art After Dark” parties at the PFAC, will feature bands, wine, food, and other entertainment. The Art After Dark event on February 15 will celebrate the Chinese New Year, with special activities planned to bring in the Year of the Dog. The show and related events will be announced on the radio, a massive internet campaign, and other media. At least one advance article will be published in a local paper. Over 2000 direct mailers will be sent to the membership lists of PFAC and of the Gallery, to assure strong attendance and excitement in the community. Private events and lectures will also be presented at Hampton Road Academy, and other locations to be announced.
Please consider supporting this exciting project bringing a dynamic collaboration and cultural exchange to Hampton Roads. These efforts support our love for Art and education, and they also provide opportunities for philanthropic growth and fundraising for the non-profit community.
