The solo exhibition, curated by Mark Dean Johnson, professor of art at San Francisco State University, will continue through March 26. Hou Beiren, who is approaching 100 years old, is well known for his interpretation of the “splash ink and color” school of painting, which combines the brushwork of classical Chinese painting with Modernist and Abstract elements.
