Obsession with Art, Holding on to Feelings: Art of Chen Chia-shang
Exhibition Dates: August 1, 2015 to November 8, 2015
Exhibition Venue: Galleries 303-304, Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts
Supported by: Bureau of Cultural Affairs, Kaohsiung City Government
Organized by: Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts

About the Exhibition:
At an age of over 80, Chen Chia-shang has spent more than 60 years studying art and painting, and his works are characterized by his love for the countryside and an unadorned, down-to-earth personal style. He founded the Kaohsiung Watercolor Association in 1990, which was the sole dedicated local watercolor group at the time. Chen also joined the Asian Watercolor Painting Alliance and engaged in watercolor instruction and promotion. He was chosen as chairman of the Asian Watercolor Painting Alliance in 2004, and was the first person from Taiwan to receive this honor. He received the Kaohsiung Culture and Arts Award in 2014, which suffices to show his artistic achievements. Beyond perfecting his own watercolor technique, Chen Chia-shang has also promoted international watercolor interchange, and striven to draw attention to the important role played by Taiwan and Kaohsiung in the international art community.This exhibition assembles the finest of Chen Chia-shang's transparent watercolors and acrylic watercolors from his 60-year career, and these works exhibit his stubborn devotion to the path of art. We hope that this exhibition will highlight the unique qualities and expressive diversity of watercolors, encourage interest in watercolor painting, and deepen appreciation of watercolor aesthetics.
