COSHOCTON – The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum will present a new special exhibit of contemporary Chinese paintings from Sept. 19 through Jan. 3, 2016.

Along the Silk Road II was curated by Yan (John) Sun, professor of art at Muskingum University. Professor Sun selected works for this original exhibition primarily from art institutes and artists’ studios in China. Of the 40 pieces in the show, 25 are created with Chinese paper, ink and brush. The remaining use other media such as oil and watercolor. Notable artists include Yang Xiaoyang, president of China National Art Institute and a number of professors at the Xi’an Academy of Fine Art.

Professor Sun will give a Chinese painting demonstration in the gallery on Saturday, Sept. 26 at 2 p.m. Along the Silk Road II is sponsored by Jerry and Gloria Meyer. The Ohio Arts Council also helped fund this event with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. In addition to this special exhibit, the museum’s permanent collections are displayed in three galleries: Historic Ohio, American Indian and Asian. A printing display can also be viewed in a fifth gallery.

The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is open daily from noon to 5 p.m. through October, and from November through April, 1 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. The museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman St. in Historic Roscoe Village.
