2017 Gallery 21 Reception

The Chinese Brush Painting Society’s 2017 Exhibit & Sale at Gallery 21 in Spanish Village, Balboa Park showcased over 90 original Chinese brush paintings representing the work of 15 local artists. Many people, including visitors to San Diego from all over the world, visited the Gallery during the two week exhibit. Many had not seen Asian brush art before and were intrigued to discover and learn about this medium.  Some of our member artists demonstrated brush painting techniques for visitors to watch and enjoy. Many walked away with an original painting!

Several large landscapes by our featured artist, Pamela Auerbach, sold as well as numerous cards and unframed, matted works.  The Artists' reception was well attended, and guests were engaged in learning what inspires Western artists to study the Chinese way of painting and calligraphy.
