Please join us on Monday, November 16 at 5:00 pm for a Byrdcliffe Forum artist talk with Hongnian Zhang interviewed by James Cox. The talk will take place on Zoom. Details at woodstockguild.org/virtual-byrdcliffe/byrdcliffe-forum/

Hongnian Zhang is a Chinese American realism painter, whose works are beloved in both America and China.

His formal artistic training was at China’s highly selective Central Art Academy. Immediately afterwards, he was sent to the countryside to endure four years of hard labor as “Re-education” during the Cultural Revolution. His art career began when he returned to Beijing in 1974 and was selected to join the Beijing Fine Art Academy. Three of his works were acquired by China’s National Art Museum for their permanent collection.

He moved to America in 1985. In 1986 he was in the first show introducing Chinese oil painting to the West. “Realism from China” at Grand Central Art Galleries in New York City attracted national attention.

Several of Hongnian Zhang’s Chinese history paintings have been featured in National Geographic Magazine. He recently painted the mural “The Travels of Marco Polo” for China’s National Museum in Beijing.

Zhang and his wife, the artist Lois Woolley, co-wrote The Yin Yang of Painting, which presents his methods and philosophy of painting.

James Cox met Hongnian Zhang when he was Executive Director of the Grand Central Art Galleries in New York City. Cox then moved to upstate New York where he opened the James Cox Gallery in the historic art colony of Woodstock.
