Hands across the Pacific 2019 kicks off in the morning of August 6th in Ningbo Museum of Art, with artists from ten countries like Australia, Canada, Indonesia, and Japan bringing eighty-two works to China.

Hands across the Pacific 2019 is organized by Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries (CPAFFC) and the People’s Government of Ningbo Municipality. The art exhibition, since 2000 when it was hosted by CPAFFC and Canadian International Cultural Exchange Society, has become a platform for artistic communication among countries and regions across the Pacific Rim. With its footprint travelling Canada, Japan, and many cities in China, Hands across the Pacific is now enjoying high popularity in Asia-Pacific region.

This art exhibition, displaying eighty-two artistic works from ten different countries across the Pacific, presents to us not just exquisite craftmanship, but their pursuit for better life and passion for nature. For example, a Japanese artist explains that his work Wave, an art of creative seal cutting using twenty different colors, is inspired by Archaeological Ruins of Liangzhu City which recently made it to the list of world intangible cultural heritages.

This exhibition is expected to present a diverse cultural feast to the Chinese audience.

It is interesting to note that all the twenty-eight works displayed in the exhibition are created by Ningbo artists.

The exhibition lasts to August 16th.
