China’s Darkest Hours: Tell the World

July 11 – July 31, 1989

McPherson Library Gallery

This exhibition features the direct and somewhat controversial art work of Ritha Mason.

Mason expresses, in the form of paintings, collages, and fibre glass sculpture, her horror at the recent events in China. These works depict the tragedy, the discontent and the confusion of present day China. Some pieces attempt a glimpse at a more optimistic future.
