Fort Bend County Libraries’ First Colony Branch Library, 2121 Austin Parkway in Sugar Land, will present a demonstration of Chinese watercolor brush painting by Dao Truong on Saturday, May 21, beginning at 2:00 pm, in the library’s Meeting Room.
Born in South Vietnam, Truong escaped on one of the refugee boats with one of his most-treasured possessions hidden beneath his shirt – a watercolor painting done by his teacher. A student of the Lingnan Style of Chinese Watercolor, Truong has continued to study and perfect the technique over the years, gradually developing his own unique and innovative style. Several paintings done by Truong may be seen in the library’s display cases throughout the month of May.
The demonstration is free and open to the public. For more information, call the branch library at 281-238-2800 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
