China Art Gallery


Founded in 1959, the China Art Gallery (Zhongguo Meishuguan) has 14 exhibition halls with a total floor space of 6,000 sq meter. Architecturally, the building successfully melds traditional roofing and structure with light, modern space. Visitors particularly enjoy the gallery's frequently changing Chinese and foreign art. The China Daily newspaper has information on current exhibits.

The gallery also has a gift store that sells an excellent selection of folk art including woodblock prints and paper cuts and also art books, note cards and calligraphy brushes.
