"Light and Shadow," a photography exhibit on loan from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Chicago is featured through Aug. 30 at the Bartlett Village Hall Art Gallery, 228 S. Main St., Bartlett, with a reception and ribbon cutting at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6.
This exhibit, presented by Arts in Bartlett, in cooperation with the Midwest Hakka Association, is in recognition of the connection to Taiwan through Bartlett's Sister City, Miaoli City, established by the village and Arts in Bartlett in 2010.
The exhibit features two female photographers from Taiwan. Chang Hsiu-huang's landscapes offer a scenic tour of Taiwan, from the mounts to the sea, from the urban to the rural. Chang Yung-Chieh's series of photos of the village of Kochapongane explores the wisdom of the aboriginal Rukai cultural traditions.
The 2 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6, reception in the Bartlett village hall includes a ribbon cutting with Bartlett Village President Kevin Wallace, other village trustees, and TECO Director General Baushuan Ger. The reception following includes a performance by the Chicago Hakka Chorus and Bartlett International Chorus.
The event is free. For information, contact Arts in Bartlett, art@artsinbartlett or (630) 372-4151.
