Writing an Image: Literati Art Reception and Viewing

From 6:00 – 8:00p.m at the Oakland University Art Gallery in Wilson Hall
Chinese art and history lovers won’t want to miss "Writing an Image: Literati Art Reception and Viewing" at a special reception following the Woodcock Legacy business seminar. The collection contains 29 scroll paintings, 11 calligraphies representing a variety of calligraphic styles and 15 rubbing impressions of old Chinese stone monuments which Amitendranath Tagore, a Chinese language and literature professor at OU, collected in the early 1950’s while living and studying in China. Tagore and his wife, Arundhati Tagore, Kresge Library technician, enjoyed 25 years of teaching at Oakland University and serving at the Kresge Library and upon their retirement donated the Tagore Collection to the university.
