Chinese contemporary ink painting aims to demonstrate how traditional ink art renews and recreates itself through the integration of contemporary life and theme. This exhibition and symposium are part of the International Advocate for Chinese Ink Painting organized by China National Academy of Painting. China National Academy of Painting is a non-profit national art institute with emphasis on art creation, art research, art education, art collection, cultural promotion and exchange, bringing together the best artists in the Chinese art field.

“Ink Painting from the East: An Exhibition of Contemporary Chinese Ink” includes 54 artworks created by 28 renowned and active Chinese contemporary ink artists; they present the highest academic and aesthetic art achievement in China. The symposium is to discuss Contemporary Chinese Ink Painting: Art Appreciation and Re-evaluation in a Cross-Cultural Context from both the American and Chinese perspectives.

We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate New York Gallery of Chinese Art on its grand opening. The New York Gallery of Chinese Art is an art gallery that focuses on traditional and contemporary Chinese arts. This is a collaboration, under the guidance of the Center for Chinese Art at William Paterson University, is a pivotal window to introduce Chinese arts in New York City—the art world capital. We sincerely thank Mr. Ip-Wing Kong for his contribution and efforts promoting and supporting Chinese art.
