  • Huddleston Hall Ballroom, University of New Hampshire, Durham, NH 03824

Confucius Institute -UNH is presenting a unique exhibition of 85 Chinese New Year woodblock pictures from the Peach Blossom Valley Woodblock Research Center at the Suzhou Academy of Fine Arts and Technology. These pictures were printed in the 1970s by a few master artists using the now-extinct high quality Red Star Brand Chinese rice paper. The content ranges from everyday culture and tradition to popular legends and significant historical events.

In collaboration with the UNH Art Department, CI-UNH hopes to make this event an interactive workshop and exhibition, with an on-screen virtual tour of the whole woodblock process plus hands-on coloring of prints to take home. Ten UNH Art Department senior students will lead the separate workshops under the guidance of Art Professors Brain Chu and Xiaoping Wang. Oyster River Middle School Jazz Band will perform on site as well.

This event is free and open to the public.
