Chinese Opera Paintings
March 20th, Artist reception and opening night for the Chinese van Gogh -Zhixian Ren. 2-5 at Kerf International Gallery at the Wallingford Center 1815, N 45th St. Seattle.
The show will run through April 25th (Noon to 7pm, Tuesday through Friday and from noon to 6 pm on Saturdays. 21 original paintings of ancient Chinese opera characters will be on display and they are beautiful.
