China and Japan are two countries rich in myths, legends and folk tales. Many themes of historical and mythical characters are shared by both nations.
This exhibition will attempt to show how artists and craftsmen portrayed or rendered these subjects in their own way in various media from two dimensional paintings, prints and te3xtiles to three dimensional sculptures in the round made of pottery, bronze, wood, jade, amber, ivory, etc.
The exhibition will be composed of art from both the extensive Asian art collection of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and some private collections. The works of art featured will be both ancient and more modern.
