If you’re in Kaohsiung (高雄), Taiwan, and are a fan of art, you may want to check out this post.  If you’re not in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, but are a fan of art, you may want to…check out this post.

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. Paintings are being sold, but don’t worry, they will remain there even when sold for the rest of the exhibit.  Feel free to take a visit no matter if you are an art connoisseur, art student, or even just someone with nothing to do one afternoon!

Tired of reading? Here, they say “A picture is worth a thousand words” So, here’s a few thousand

Here are some of her most popular paintings and my favorites (other than the Lotus above which is her most popular paintings!):
