Starting off the new semester (and year) with a B(ahh)ang!

Last evening was quite the event here in The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland. Reshuffling the Past: Contemporary Chinese Ink Art opened with a large amount of pomp and circumstance. Over 300+ guests from across the University community and beyond gathered to mark the occasion. And while the beautiful paintings were definitely the highlight and foundation of the great evening, receiving Chinese New Year’s greetings from University of Maryland Students (in impeccable Chinese!) were a close second. Happy year of the sheep!

It’s hard to believe that this:
