This exhibition consists of three artists who explore ink as an interesting medium on painting and photography. Their works freely mix current techniques with traditional brushwork from Chinese painting, focusing on the creative possibilities of lighting and shadow. These artists assert that we are now in an "Ink Age," in which the medium has unlimited uses. 

Opening reception: Tuesday, March 6, with an artist talk at 4:30 and a reception from 5:00–7:00 pm.

Participating artists: Ruya Qian, Tian Sun, and Haisu Tian


The Diego Rivera Gallery, home to SFAI’s historic Diego Rivera Mural, is a student-directed exhibition space for work by SFAI students. The gallery provides an opportunity for students from all academic programs to present their work or curate in a gallery setting; to use the space for large-scale installations; or to experiment with artistic concepts and concerns in a public venue.
