The first exhibition of "Shi Yuan Masters' Oil Painting Exhibition" was held in Keqiao Art Museum on New Year's Day in 2022. This exhibition was sponsored by Keqiao District Federation of Literary and Art Circles, and jointly organized by Keqiao Art Museum and Shaoxing Hanyue Culture Development Co., Ltd. More than 110 oil paintings by famous domestic oil painters such as Qin Dahu, Liu Xuan and Lin Tao were exhibited, attracting many art enthusiasts. The exhibition will continue till January 15, 2022.
It is said that the three creative artists are both friends and tutors of each other. Among them, Qin Dahu, a professor at China Academy of Art, is a famous artist who enjoys a good reputation both at home and abroad. He is known as "the pioneer of Chinese historical genre painting". They used brushes to show their love for Keqiao in the form of paintings. At the exhibition, nearly 40% of the works depicted the pictures of water towns south of the Yangtze River, which are full of Keqiao elements, such as Keyan Giant Buddha and Keqiao Ancient Town, as well as the stunning changes in Keqiao in the past 30 years. These works showed the creators' devotion to family and country and tireless pursuit of art.
