Thanks to a Creative Space Grant from the San Francisco Arts Commission, we installed new
carpeting in the Center's main gallery and shop. While we were at it, we also gave the
gallery shop a face-lift. We hope you'll like its new design and feng shui.
New In The Shop
Peasant paintings. The Center has acquired a handful of original paintings by Chinese
peasant artists from the 1980s depicting village life in brilliant, vivid colors.
Butterflies aflutter in gallery shop. If you step into our
gallery shop and happen to see a butterfly or two flitting about amongst the carved seals,
Moon Festival lanterns, and handmade silk kites, it's only the flitting that's in your
imagination! Our shop now carries butterflies from Asia and other parts of the world
handsomely mounted in acrylic display cases.
