A big thanks to those who came by our booth (in the SUB) Frost Fest Thursday and Friday (between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.) and signed up to become a member of our club!

Here is a picture of Preetham and Ansu at the show and their review:
“[We] watched the show on Friday and we really loved the experience. The costumes, the colour, dance, unique way of story telling everything impressed both of us…”
October 27-31, 2014 (The International Art Exhibition of Truth-Compassion-Tolerance)
A big thanks to those who came by our International Art Exhibition of Truth-Compassion-Tolerance during the last week of October in the SUB.
The Art of Truth-Compassion-Tolerance brings together the work of eighteen Falun Gong artists. The exhibit’s pieces not only give poignant, visual treatment of the persecution to Falun Gong practitioners in China, but also depict the artists’ inner life and their firsthand experiences. This combination provides an intimate and unique window into the often untold Chinese experience of the past 15 years.
The techniques and styles of their work are mostly classical, as the artists apply classical oil painting techniques. They consider their art-forms as “Neo-Renaissance.” Several other works involve classical Chinese motifs painted on silk or paper, valuable for those interested in Chinese art and culture.
We hope you enjoyed the exhibition! Thank you to those who left positive and supportive comments in our comment book. Below are some pictures from the event:
October 9, 2014 (FDF Ice Breaker)
