Chinese ink painter Liang Tan-mei (梁丹美), the eldest daughter of the late painter Liang Ting-ming (梁鼎銘), will hold a solo exhibition at the National Dr. Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall from Feb. 21 through March 9.
With extensive teaching experience in schools, student clubs, and art societies, Liang also flew twice to the Philippines to teach overseas Chinese expatriates during her 70-year painting career. She has also served as committee member of many local fine art societies and art competitions.
Born to a family of artists, Liang learned both Chinese and Western styles during her childhood. She often paints things and objects that inspire her in daily life. Her works have been displayed in joint exhibitions with her husband and sisters. In 1980, she was awarded the prestigious Golden Goblet Award for watercolor paintings by the Painting Society of the Republic of China.
Liang draws inspiration from Mother Nature, with plum blossoms, which symbolize perseverance and personal strength, being her favorite. She also likes to capture the changing clouds, waters, and the growth and withering of plants with her brush.
The exhibition features her latest Chinese ink paintings on plum trees in Nantou County's Xinyi Township, as well as ink paintings featuring flowers and wizened trees. Her watercolor paintings portraying natural landscapes such as clouds, the sun, and mountains are also to be displayed.
