Here is another chance to see a selection of Evelyn’s photographs from rural villages in China.
Miao Folk Art, on display in Vancouver from October 1 to November 30 at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, offers a peek into the lives of the Miao people, one of many diverse minority groups in China. Vintage and modern dress, embroidery, batik pieces, religious masks and jewelry are on display. The exhibit, the brain-child of artist Caesar Jun Hu, draws extensively on photographs by Vancouver photographer/anthropologist Evelyn Nodwell.
Miao Folk Art is being produced by the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in partnership with the Asia Pacific International Artist Foundation, the City of Burnaby and, most notably, the inspiring people of the Miao villages in Guizhou province, China.
