Chinese brush painter will

lecture, conduct workshop

I-Hsiung Ju, a retired professor of art at Washington and Lee University in Virginia, will lecture at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art on the UO Campus.

An artist for 60 years, Ju has lived in mainland China, the Philippines and in the eastern United States. He has concentrated on ink painting, but also has worked in sculpture, ceramics, wood carving and glass blowing.

Ju is steeped in the tradition of Chinese literati painting and applies that technique to American scenes, such as paintings of Half Dome at Yosemite National Park. He will also demonstrate his ink painting tech- niques.

The museum is at 1430 John- son Lane.
