My friend Pat Dillon and I caught the China Now and Then exhibition at Nassau County Museum of Art a few days ago.
A dramatic docent was already leading a tour group when we arrived, so we spent our time in the ground level galleries capturing photographs and learning about ancient Chinese blue and white porcelain and 21st Century Chinese ink-on-paper paintings.
Then we climbed the spiral staircase to the upstairs galleries which mainly featured contemporary Chinese art.
The China Now and Then exhibition’s synergistic blend of ancient and modern Chinese art was both inspiring and fun, and we ended our visit at the museum’s Gift Shop, where I bought colorful Swirl Sunglasses.
