Proudly Announcing the Judge for the 48th Annual RCAS Regional Art Show – Xiang Zhang
We are delighted to have such a dynamic talent as Xiang Zhang to be our Judge for the Richardson Civic Art Society 2014 Regional Show which will be hanging in the Eisemann Center from May 1-27, 2014. Here is a very brief biography:
Born in the year of the Horse, Xiang Zhang (pronounced Shong Zang) grew up in China. After graduating from The Central Academy of Drama in Beijing, where he was strongly influenced by the 19th century Russian masters, he received his Masters Degree in Fine Art from Tulane University in New Orleans. While at Tulane, he developed his special style of portraiture work and increasingly cowboy art.
Combining impressionistic, as well as realistic techniques, awards in regional and national shows marked him as an artist to watch. The excellent, consistent quality of Zhang’s work has made him one of the most collectible artists in the world.
Xiang Zhang’s paintings hang in private and corporate collections in the United States, Canada, Europe and China. If you want to see some of his works, please go to his website: www.xiangzhangart.com
