Program: Secret from a Chinese Garden: Hidden Meanings in Chinese Botanical Motifs

Thursday, 4/23/15 @ 6:00 p.m. Free & Open to the Public

In China, images of flowers and plants often convey hidden messages.

In this presentation, Sally Yu Leung, an independent lecturer, author, and curator of Chinese decorative arts, and teacher of Chinese brush-painting at the School of Botanical Art & Illustration at the Denver Botanic Gardens, will reveal the symbolism and hidden meanings of the botanical motifs in Chinese flower paintings, ceramics, textiles, and other objects. These imageries are aesthetically pleasing as well as the bearers of auspicious messages.
 

Come and discover how one can become a sleuth on Chinese botanical symbolism.

This program is free and open to the public.
