The Chicagolite, a luxury lifestyle site, featured my exhibition wonderfully.
The editor, Kori Coleman, interviewed Mr. Joel Oppenheimer and me before the opening reception, and she stayed with us during the whole event to capture the best moments. I am grateful that her story appeared beautifully with outstanding photos.

Wow! That was a beautiful and energetic opening reception!

Conservationists, plant scientists, art lovers.... all gathered together to celebrate the humble beauty of our plants. We experienced the moment of connecting nature conservation to the art world.

I want to convey my deepest appreciation to the supporters. Mr. Oppenheimer's speech was especially grateful considering my works on par with those of John James Audubon, Pierre-Joseph Redoute and other classic masters. What can I expect more?

The exhibit runs until May 9, 2015. It is my honor to be exclusively represented as the first living artist by this beautiful and prestigious natural history art gallery.
