Shanghai Painting and Calligraphy Art Gallery settles in Jiading

A ceremony is held recently to mark the opening of the newly established Painting and Calligraphy Gallery in the Jiading district and a painting and calligraphy exhibition. 

A painting and calligraphy exhibition was held recently at Shanghai’s Painting and Calligraphy Gallery, which has been newly established in Jiangqiao town, near Shanghai’s Jiading district.

The exhibition was sponsored by the Shanghai Painting and Calligraphy Academy, and many guests from literary and art circles attended the opening ceremony.

Over 160 works of art created by artists of all ages, including paintings, calligraphy works and sculptures, were on display at the gallery which covers an area of more than 1,000 square meters.

The opening of the Painting and Calligraphy Gallery will not only establish a solid basis for the development of Shanghai’s Painting and Calligraphy Academy, but also provide a platform for the general public to get close to art.

The exhibition is scheduled to last until March 15.
