"Echoes and Reflections," an exhibition of works by young Chinese artists, opened Sunday at Gallery Three in Sanlitun Village North.

The show is an exploration of "artists' experiences and reactions to the contemporary Chinese society...[and to] the vibrant Chinese art scene," according to curator Susan Wang.

"These are works by young, developing and promising artists. We want to have a greater variety of scenes and techniques so the public can have a cross-section of contemporary visual art," Wang said of the show.

That desire to cross-section contemporary art drove Wang to curate the show with more regard for aesthetic diversity than stylistic coherence. "We have included, among other techniques, not only oils, but acrylics, sculptures, photographs, drawings and traditional water and ink...On one side, we have portraits done in oil in a classical realistic style, on the other, we have abstract works, surrealist [works] and installation works," said Wang.

Seventeen artists, including Li Muzi, Luo Meng, Wang Zhuo and Liu Rongfeng, are featured in the show. Almost all of the artists are under 30 and most attended the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing.

Sunday's well-attended opening was sponsored by New Vision and included an artwork raffle for attendees.

"Echoes and Reflections" will run through July 12.
