On February 27, more than 80 participants joined the Canadian Society for Asian Arts (CSAA) and Asian Library for the Ink Dance program. The event recording is now available.
The program began with welcome remarks from Adolfo Tarango, acting head of Asian Library, and Margo Palmer, president of CSAA. Dr. Jan Walls, professor emeritus at Simon Fraser University and past president of CSAA, then presented an overview on the art of Chinese calligraphy, focusing on the works of the late Master Yim Tse, a dedicated librarian, celebrated calligrapher, devoted mentor and philanthropist. This was followed by a short calligraphy demonstration video featuring Yim’s senior disciples Greta Ho and Andrew Yang. The program ended with a question & answer session.
CSAA and Asian Library will continue to develop the Ink Dance retrospective exhibition of calligraphy by Master Yim Tse. We hope to welcome you in-person to this exhibition at the UBC Asian Centre when it is safe to do so. Please stay tuned for the updates.
