Lecture on Chinese landscape paintings this week at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Coming up at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, it's a discussion of some classic Chinese art. Phil Meade, with the K.I.A., says that Doctor Amelia Kit-Yiu Chau, an expert on Asian art at the Crocker Art Museum, will stop by for a lecture on Chinese landscape paintings, which are currently on display.

"She is going to talk generally about Chinese landscape paintings, and how they were the most important genre for ancient Chinese arts," Meade told WKZO. "So, she is going to talk about the history of it. Most of the pieces in our current exhibition, called Mountains and Waters, are from the 19th and 20th centuries, but she's going back to the eighth century, when it started."

The lecture is set for this Thursday at the KIA from six to eight PM. Admission is free.
