Dragon Year Gallery Hosts Art Salon
The Dragon Year Gallery hosted a very special art exhibition this past weekend featuring some of the top young Chinese artists today. Will Tsai and gallery partners traveled across half of China to visit with top art academies and meet hundreds of young artists in person. A total of eight final artists were initially selected to be presented at the Dragon Year Gallery, which featured their opening night this past Saturday, November 9th. The show itself will run for several weeks and can be viewed through appointment.
Just like its artists, Dragon Year Gallery is also young and unique, as it is a gallery that focuses on introducing emerging young Chinese artists to the world. Founded in 2012, the Year of the Dragon, the gallery represents a variety of contemporary artwork selected from the best Chinese art academies. They are now hosting a monthly Art Salon and regular lecture sessions. They invite local residents and expatriates to join them for the Art Salon, which functions like an art party, showcasing new artists and encouraging the sharing and discussion of art and life. Dragon Year Gallery strives to create an international art community through these events, and bring greater exposure to China’s talented young artists.
The recent exhibition was a strong example of the Dragon Year Galley’s involvement and impact on the Chinese art scene, and they are more than happy to encourage these young artists who express their feelings and experiences of China through independent, youthful eyes. ”What is really wonderful is that the artists are thinking about what kind of country they are building, what kind of direction they are going in, and how they are contributing to Chinese society,” says Will Tsai. Dragon Year Gallery represents young artists that both capture the emotions and thoughts that symbolize the essence of modern China, while still preserving the depth of the centuries-long Chinese art traditions.
