  • Asia Gallery, Spencer Museum of Art, University of Kansas, Lawrence, Kansas

The spring exhibition in the Asia Gallery addresses the human drive to explore, discover and transform the world around us to meet our needs, to satisfy our curiosity, and to delight us. For instance, in the painting Pine Spirit, Chinese artist Wu Guanzhong looks both to the ancient Chinese tradition of shan-shui-hua and to abstract expressionism, transforming both into a highly individual and compelling vision of "mountains and rivers."

Organized by Mary M. Dusenbury, guest curator of Asian art.
