Opening Reception:  Saturday, May 1.  5:00 – 8:00pm

The Brentwood Arts Exchange celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with its second exhibition Beyond Boundaries – The Art of Shanye Huang.  Huang’s vibrant, colorful painting and installation works bridge the Zhuang folkloric heritage of Guangxi, China with Western color field traditions, and the disciplined skills of Chinese academic painting.

Chinese-American artist Shanye Huang grew up in the autonomous Guangxi Zhuang region of southwest China; where the Vietnamese border and rugged terrain have made it a frontier of Chinese civilization for over two thousand years.  Populated by sixteen ethnic minorities, the area is known for vibrant folk arts, embroidery, love songs and poetry,  that all endure as significant parts of everyday life.
