Jerome Parker

A Central California native, Jerome comes from a family of artists and musicians.

A quiet and introspective figure, Jerome is active in galleries in this beautiful region of his home state.

Figurative compositions, closely observed from life, comprise many of this artist s rich work in oils and charcoal.

Though clearly inspired by the masters, Jerome s intriguing subjects nevertheless capture

a certain contemporary view of life in the moment. – Jerome Parker

Ai Xuan (*1947)

Ai Xuan is a Chinese painter born on November 11, 1947 in Jinhua,Zhejiang.

He has also won several awards including: in 1981, a second-class National Youth Arts Award for his oil painting "wholesale";

In 1987, Ai spent a year in the United States, visiting academics at Oklahoma City University.

An He (*1957)

An He is a Chinese-American artist whose work we first exhibited over 15 years ago.

He is known for his magnificent portrait paintings of women. Many times his subject will be in a garden or elegant interior setting.

In some of An’s earlier work, the backgrounds were quite impressionistic.

In his more recent pieces, he has been leaning toward a more realistic treatment of the background.

What has remained constant in An’s artwork throughout the years though, is the beautiful detail and delicate treatment of his subject.
