Inspired exhibit on display at University

Painting by Shimo from the "Transcendent Landscape" collection

“Transcendent Landscape,” a collection of recent works by Chinese artist Shimo featuring landscapes of China, Tibet and California, will be on display in Sacramento State’s University Library Gallery Annex from Friday, Dec. 1 to Sunday, Dec. 17.

The works are painted on large sheets of special handmade paper and are a blend of Chinese and Western techniques. The paintings were inspired by Shimo’s visits to the various locations and are painted from the heart, he says. “For me, painting is a combination of skill, accident, and emotion. It is a transcending experience.”

Shimo will give a lecture on his work at 5:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 1 in Mariposa Hall 1000. A reception at the Library Gallery Annex will follow from 6:30 to 8 p.m. During the reception, a Chinese language docent tour will be available.

Additional Chinese language docent tours will be available from 10 a.m. – noon, Dec. 5 and 12.

English language docent tours of the exhibition are available by calling (916) 803-5818. For more information about the exhibit, contact Sacramento State Professor Pat Chirapravati at (916) 278-3880. For media requests, contact the Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
