A little background:
My mother is Wei Chen Hui (魏珍輝), who is a painter for over 30 years. Her Chinese Traditional art is of the Lingnan Style. Lingnan, which literally translates to “South of the Ranges” actually refers to a region in China south of the ‘Five Ranges’ which are Tayu, Qitian, Dupang, Mengzhu, Yuecheng. Many famous artists are of Lingnan style, and my mother is one of the artist to have learned the art of the Lingnan style.
Why did I mention Kaohsiung? Because she is currently having an exhibit in the the Kaohsiung Public Library (台灣高雄市立圖書館). She will be there until either May 10th.
