Description: Art has the ability to connect with the beholder, to uplift the spirit and to give hope. For oil painting, its technical aspects reached maturity during the Renaissance and flourished for the next few hundred years. However, in the last century, modern art has consciously proceeded down a different path in terms of subject matter and technical rigor. With an eye towards tradition, the NTD Chinese International Figure Painting Competition aims to restore the artistic ideals of the past. Using classical Western realistic methods, artists of Chinese descent from around the world will display some of the best works of art created during this period of history. Expect to feel uplifted and refreshed from the beauty and purity these artists have sought to capture on canvas. Free Admission. Exhibition of Works: Nov 28th - Dec 3rd, 2011 Award Ceremony and Reception: Saturday, Dec 3rd, 1.30pm.
