Xie Tianzi Xie Tianzi from Beijing, People's Republic of China will have a solo exhibit titled China Water and Earth: Chinese Ink Scrolls and Ceramics from the reception from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., Saturday, July 7 to August 1, 2007 at the Dolphin Gallery.

Artist Statement:
China is in the midst of rapid and dramatic social transformation. Xie Tianzi As the Chinese people take their place on the contemporary world stage, they bring with them both an appreciation of their heritage and a new perspective on today's world. My art exists on the cusp of change. To carry forward traditional Chinese culture while immersed in modern life, to always see with new eyes, to record the unfolding moment through my inner vision -- it is to this that I aspire.

Xie Tianzi had a workshop at Gualala Arts in 2006 that was exceptional. People are looking forward to seeing an exhibit of his work at the Dolphin. He also will have two of his pieces (Chinese ink on paper/silk scroll) in the Gualala Arts IS (Instructors Show) January 13 through February 4, 2007 in the Burnett Gallery at Gualala Arts Center.

The Dolphin Gallery is located at 39225 Highway One in downtown Gualala, behind the post office on the south side, and is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please call (707) 884-3896 for more information.
