Meet the artists behind the Chinese Calligraphy & Photography Exhibit on Monday, July 9 from noon - 2 pm in the William T. Kemper Art Gallery on the first floor of the K-State Student Union. 

Artist Statement: 

Ma Man, a Chinese teacher in the Confucius Institute at K-State University, is the organizer of this exhibit. In China, she is a second-year graduate student getting her Masters in teaching Chinese to speakers of other languages in the College of Humanities at Jilin University. From childhood, she began to study Chinese calligraphy with the guidance of her father. As she grew up, she has come to a deeper understanding of the beauty of the method of making characters along with the cultural meaning of written art. She has also participated in calligraphy contests and received many awards during my undergraduate and graduate period. Chinese calligraphy and Chinese traditional painting are the profound accomplishments of traditional Chinese culture and abstract art. For these reasons she would really like to share the beauty of Chinese calligraphy with the teachers and students of K-State University through the art of other professional Chinese calligraphers, Chinese traditional painters, and her own calligraphy works.
