In the past, it was only possible to see Chinese New Year Paintings during the lunar new year. However, with changes in modern society causing a move away from traditional folk arts, it is getting more difficult to see such paintings, even during the new year. With the aim of promoting this form of art, Feng Xi Tang provides a place for the public to see Chinese New Year paintings all year round and to learn their history and how they are created, as well as meet the people who create them. This makes it the first exhibition hall of its kind in the Taipei area. Apart from the permanent display of Chinese New Year paintings, there are also special exhibits featuring local artists. In addition, visitors have the chance to create their own paintings.
PS: I agree with adding dedicated links/postings for other cities in Taiwan on Segue…especially for the South. The area is always overshadowed by Taipei.
