What’s in the Exhibition: We’ve assembled a group of Taiwanese American artists and creative professionals, each specializing in different genres of art, including photography, oil painting, Chinese brush calligraphy & painting, motion & graphics design.
A portion of the exhibition is dedicated to illustrating the different facets of Taiwan, or aka Formosa, and its rich cultural history and beauty.
And of course, the center piece of our exhibition: Taiwan Photo Collage, pieced together by photos which you have submitted along side with many other friends and members from around the community. So if you have contributed photo, you do not want to miss seeing it in person. The Cause:
A selection of artwork in the exhibition will be made available for a silent auction. The proceeds from the artwork sold will go to The Foundation of Disabled Youth (www.ffdy.org), an organization that helps and serves the needs of families with disabled youth in the Asian community.”
