Starting this month, the inspiring and original works of 27 contemporary artists from Taiwan and Australia are on display as part of an exhibition tour — Blossom Spirit, which will last until late November. The exhibition will be on display in Melbourne, the Tainan Municipal Cultural Center, and the Cultural Affairs Bureau of Kinmen County.

As art is a universal language, Hsu Tsui-hua, the main organizer of the hovering exhibition, led a number of Australian artists to visit the Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery and the Sincewell Gallery in Greater Kaohsiung three years ago for artistic exchanges, and giving them a chance to make sketches in Taiwan and Kinmen County. It was an unforgettable artistic journey for these international friends. The Blossom Spirit tour is organized in collaboration with the Hsin Hsiang Art Association of Greater Tainan, helping Taiwan and Australia hold their exhibitions in tandem. Furthermore, this is the only exhibition selected by the Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery of Greater Kaohsiung to be put on display internationally at the Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery of Melbourne, allowing beautiful Taiwanese art to be shown in Australia and great Australian art to be on display in Taiwan.

Taiwanese artists participating in the exhibition tour include Wu Chin-yuan, Liu Jung-ying, Chen Chao-ming, Lin Chun-cheng, Chen Yao-wu, Chou Chen-tung, Chen Mei-yun, Yang Yung-pen, Wang Yung-chuan, Kuo Che-chuan, Chen Ping, Mo Chia-pin, Chen Yu-pin, Chuang Ya-tung, Hu Ming-ching, Yen Pi-ling, Wu Ke-wen, Hsu Tsui-hua, Huang Yen-jung, Feng Hsiao-ying, and Lin Chao-yu, while the Australian artists include Fay Salmon, Sandra Angliss, Anne Langdon, Jan Ross, Bridget O’Leary and Roma McLaughlin. The exhibition at Tainan Municipal Cultural Center will be on display until tomorrow. The exhibition at the Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery of Melbourne lasts until Aug. 31, and the exhibition at the Kinmen County Cultural Affairs Bureau will be on display from Nov.17 until Nov. 29.
