Some 240 outstanding paintings and paper-cutting works made by rural artists from nine provinces and autonomous regions of China debuted in Urumqi, northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, on June 22.
These works are from Xinjiang, Hebei, Guangdong, Shanxi, Shandong, Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Jilin, demonstrating and promoting the charm and grace of traditional Chinese culture.
The exhibition was held under the guidance of the Xinjiang Cultural Department, co-sponsored by the Xinjiang Cultural Center and the Urumqi Cultural Bureau.
Besides the exhibition, cultural activities were also launched on the campus and in the local community. In addition, a symposium was held in order to promote the development of Chinese rural painting.
A paper-cutting exchange activity was also carried out to promote traditional Chinese culture and better express the sincere affection of grassroots artists towards the motherland and their hometown.
Wang Ying, a local resident who came to visit the exhibition, said: "I did not expect that the paintings and paper-cuttings by rural artists would be so earthy and pristine. I hope that they will be appreciated by more visitors, to help them promote the fine traditional Chinese culture."
