New fall shows coming up at Confederation Centre Art Gallery

Scroll painting (detail) by Chinese artist Dianyu ZhaoSeptember is a transition month at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery in Charlottetown with the installation of the first of several new exhibitions in an exciting new fall program that mixes local and global subjects.

Objects of the Mind: Chinese Brush and Ink Paintings by Dianyu Zhao begins on September 14 in the Fred S. and Ogden Martin Concourse Gallery. Dianyu Zhao is a highly regarded Chinese artist who specializes in painting nature and, in particular, flowers and birds. He’s known as a student of “Qi’s Lineage” as he studied under the guidance of Qi, Liangchi, a son of Qi, Baishi, one of the two most famous painters in modern Chinese art history. This exhibition of scroll paintings, borrowed from a private collection, is a collaboration between the Great Enlightenment Buddhist Institute Society and the Confederation Centre Art Gallery.

The retrospective exhibition, Marlene Creates: Places, Paths and Pauses, continues until September 30 at the Gallery. 

Tickets for Afterimage, an after-hours art party in the art gallery on September 29, 9 pm to 1 am, are now on sale. Afterimage promises to be an exciting and fun night—a mash-up featuring visual art, games, performances, music, and a DJ to keep the dance floor full.
