Merissa Walker, Light My Fire, 1999, ink on paper, 59” x 17 ¾”.
This group show displays work by artists whose diverse styles stem from the Chinese and Western calligraphy traditions. The artists commonly use brushes, ink and paper, but the resulting works range from boldly abstract to recognizably scripted characters. This show is jointly presented at The Newark Museum and the Robeson Center Art Gallery. The exhibition will then go to the National Taiwan Arts Education Institute in Taipei, Taiwan.
