A CHINESE painting and calligraphy exhibition is now being staged at the Exhibition Hall of the Shaw College Lecture Theatre of the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

'Ink and Colour - A Joint Exhibition by Six Artists' features the works of Koon Wai-bong, Chan Pui, Yeung Lam-ching, Chui Lai-sha, Lai Wai-yee and Wong Nga-kwan - all third and fourth year students of the Department of Fine Arts.

The exhibition is a display of the students' enthusiasm in Chinese painting and calligraphy and their love for Chinese traditions.

Shaw College hopes that visitors will be able to share the students' artistic experiences and learn the meaning of Chinese art and the spirit of Chinese culture through the exhibition.

There are more than 70 exhibits featuring landscapes, flowers and birds, figures, as well as calligraphy. For landscapes, the students have used the technique of ink-splashing and ink accumulation.

Students express their love for nature through streams, mountains, trees and rocks.

The flower-and-bird paintings include both delicate and spontaneous styles, a revelation of how exquisite and inspiring Chinese painting can be.

The exhibition will run until February 16.
