Calligraphy is an ancient art form in China in which the characters of the Chinese language are written in various styles. Created with brush and ink, each artist expresses his emotions through his style. The writing can be appreciated as an art form without knowing the meaning of the characters. Examples of Chinese calligraphy are part of the Chinese Art Exhibition on display from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 19, at the Ernest and Ruby McSwain Center, 2420 Tramway Road, Sanford. Central Carolina Community College and its Confucius Classroom, in partnership with N.C. State University’s Confucius Institute, sponsor the show. The exhibition features 25 paintings and 25 works of calligraphy by faculty of the College of Fine Arts at Nanjing Normal University, People’s Republic of China.
