From the Yellow River to the Snake River: Stories of Chinese Tradition Across Time and Space in the Upstairs Galleries at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History in downtown Lewiston.
The exhibit focuses on the influence of Chinese culture and how it has enriched the local history of the Lewiston-Clarkston Valley and the Pacific Northwest. The exhibition showcases historic artifacts on loan from regional institutions including: the Asian American Comparative Collection at the University of Idaho, the Nez Perce County Historical Society & Museum, and the Historical Museum at St. Gertrude.
Also on view are paintings by contemporary artist Yidan Guo of Blackfoot, Idaho, who uses traditional Chinese techniques to create watercolor paintings on silk and rice paper. By embracing these methods, she connects with her heritage, ultimately bridging the past and present.
