An exhibition of calligraphy and poems by Liang Xiaoping, a pioneering Australian Chinese artist, greet art lovers in Beijing on Sept 15 at the Overseas Chinese History Museum.

With her versatility and devotion, Liang has gained achievements in calligraphy, poetry and academics over the past 30 years. She is also the first Chinese-Australian artist to exhibit at Parliament House in Canberra, Australia.

Her artworks have toured in the United States, the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong. Many celebrities, including former First Lady of Australia Annita Keating and Liang Yusheng, a top Chinese novelist of the Wuxia (martial arts and chivalry) genre, study calligraphy with her.

This exhibit features more than 300 pieces, among which are three renditions of the Thousand Character Text, an ancient Chinese poem containing 1,000 different characters, and her poetry dedicated to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games written on a 32-panel folding screen.
