Vice President and Member of the Secretariat of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF) Zhao Donghua, the wife of the U.S. Ambassador to China Mona Lee Locke, and guests from the Chinese National Academy of Arts, the China Artists Association and the National Art Museum of China as well as other organizations were among those who attended the opening ceremony and witnessed the cutting of the ribbon to open the exhibition.

The exhibition, featuring 49 of Yu Lanyin's paintings with the theme of 'Journey to the Deep and Within,' depicts a beautiful underwater world and will inspire children to protect the sea and the environment.

Yu learned art from famous traditional Chinese painting artists including Huang Junbi, Gao Yihong and Sun Duoci. She went to the United States for further education in art history and graduated with dual master's degree in artistic creation and theory. Her work combines traditional Chinese ink with western abstract expressionism, creating a special character among women's arts. As a diving fan, she records her diving experiences and fantastic underwater scenery through painting, reminding people to protect the sea and marine organisms.
