Folk Art Expo to Be Held in Northeast China
The Second China (Changchun) Folk Art Exposition, due for Aug. 28-Sept. 3 in this capital city of northeast China's Jilin province, is expected to give impetus to the development of the country's folk art industry.

According to a source close to the city authorities on Wednesday, trade fairs of artworks, including calligraphic works and paintings, and forums on folk art will be staged during the event at the joint sponsorship of the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles, the China Folk Literature and Art Association and the Changchun city government.

Many artworks with typical and vivid features of northeast China, including tree-root carvings, paper cuttings and clay sculptures, along with other items from around China in 11 categories such as paintings, knitting, potted plants and antiques, will be on display and for sale, said Zhu Yejing, director of the organizing committee.

The exposition is expected to increase contacts and exchanges among artists, salesmen and consumers, and to exploit a broader market for folk art in the country, added Zhu, also mayor of Changchun.
