About the Artists

Yuan Chin-Taa
Yuan Chin-Taa, graduated from the Department of Fine Arts of National Taiwan Normal University in 1975. He later earned his Masters degree from the City University of New York.  Already known in the art world of Asia, Yuan is deeply involved in multiple aspects of the Arts world. Chin-Taa creates works that cohesively combine a western pop influence with traditional Chinese culture. His recent pieces are reinterpretations of books, writings, symbols and graphics presented in multi-media forms.


Jack Hannula
Jack Hannula was influenced early on by his mother who was both an artist and a teacher. After earning a B.S. in Environmental Design from the University of Massachusetts, Hannula went on to earn a Masters in Landscape Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design where he won the prestigious Webbel Prize for excellence in landscape design. Hannula has held professorships in environmental design and landscape architecture at the University of Georgia and the Universite’ de Montreal. Hannula served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Iran where he designed parks and did town planning.

His love for classical painting was pursued in tandem with studies at the Art League School in Alexandria, Va., at the Plein Air School of Painting in Paris and with nationally recognized landscape painter, Bob Rohm. His current body of work focuses not only on the landscape but also on map making.

Amanda Tseng
Amanda Tseng is a Chinese American artist who spent two decades in the U.S., completely immersed in American culture. Returning to Taiwan in 2006, Tseng devoted her artistic development to Chinese ink wash painting. In a departure from tradition, Tseng doesn’t rely solely on paintbrushes to create her works. She instead allows the motion and flow of the water to form the image. Through this wet-on-wet technique “the water pushes the ink, carries it in the universe that is paper” and creates the landscape.
