China Vernacular: The Photographs of Elizabeth Gill Lui
Exhibit at the LMan Gallery from June 26 to July 31; Reception on June 26
Saturday, June 26, 2004
6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
949 Chung King Road
Lui's photographs capture the beauty of modern China: its landscape, buildings, and people. Like her collages, these views are carefully composed and sensitive to the subtle colors and textures of their subjects. Whether she photographs an empty street or a bicyclist and his companion, Lui's sensitive lens records the timeless grace and nobility of the country and its people.
An exhibit at the LMan Gallery, in Chinatown, runs from June 26 to July 31. There will be a reception at the gallery on June 26, from 6 to 9 pm.
The press release announcing the exhibit and reception are available at http://artscenecal.com/Announcements/0504/LMan0504.html.
Gallery hours are Wednesday – Saturday, 12 noon to 6 pm

Elizabeth Gill Lui is a Colorado-based artist and writer with an international exhibition and teaching career in fine art photography. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Colorado College in Comparative Religion, she pursued graduate work in photography at both Colorado College and the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University. Critically acclaimed for abstract color work that investigates the aesthetics of geometry in nature and architecture, she is a recipient of grants from the Ford Foundation, the Graham Foundation, and the Museum of Outdoor Arts. Her work has been exhibited in Europe, the former Soviet Union, Japan, Hong Kong and throughout the United States. Bodies of her work spanning the last decade include a survey of the architectural aesthetic of twentieth-century museums entitled Closed Mondays, a photo book on the United States Air Force Academy entitled Spirit and Flight, a documentary on the refugee crisis in West Africa entitled Liberian Legacy, and an extensive investigation of the relation between the spiritual and the scientific order of nature entitled The Horizon Within.
