Four Treasures
Calligraphy and ink painting by Melton Chinese Friendship Association

1 February - 13 March
CS Gallery and Melton Library

Drawing on thousands of years of tradition, local ink painters and calligraphers celebrate Chinese New Year with a selection of recent works. The Four Treasures refer to the ink brush, inkstick, paper and inkstone which are the four essential tools of Chinese calligraphy and painting. This exhibition, created by senior citizens of the Melton Chinese Friendship Association, is a sample of the fine ink and brush techniques used to create delicate lines, shades and tones in these two time-honoured Chinese art forms.
