The Canadian Society for Asian Arts and the UBC Asian Library are presenting an online overview and demonstration of Chinese calligraphy. Renowned scholar Dr. Jan Walls will discuss this revered and popular art form, with focus on the works of late Master Yim Tse, a dedicated librarian, celebrated calligrapher, devoted mentor and philanthropist. Introductions to "the four treasures of the scholar's studio" (ink stick, ink stone, writing brush and paper), coupled with demonstrations by Yim's senior disciples Greta Ho and Andrew Yang, will animate the talk. A Question & Answer period follows.
