A Calligraphy and Painting Art Exhibition will be held in New York City's borough of Queens on Saturday to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year that falls on February 5, 2019.

The exhibition, scheduled to open at 2 p.m. at the China-U.S. Cultural Exchange Center in Flushing, Queens, will feature hundreds of calligraphy and painting works by 12 well-known Chinese artists including Zhu Liye, Jiang Guangfu, You Jiang, Li Tongxin, Li Zhenxing, Yang Yi, Da Zeren, Lu Buqing, Chen Xiangdong, Fan Lei and Lin Jinquan.

Jiang Guangfu, also a senior reporter with the Hong Kong-based Phoenix TV, will write the Chinese character Fu ("福" in Chinese, means good fortune or luck) for each participant in the event.

Posting the character Fu is a tradition for Chinese people during the Lunar New Year, or Spring Festival. It can be seen almost on every entrance of Chinese homes during the holiday.
