WILLIAMSBURG SALON at the Amarin Café
THE WILLIAMSBURG ART & HISTORICAL CENTER invites you to a one person show by a member of the art club WAH SALON
July 15-Aug 26
Opening reception- Friday, July 20, 6-8 PM
Jennifer Primosch is an artist, art educator and lion dancer born and raised in New York City, where she still resides and works.
This series of paintings, THE LION DANCE, depicts the southern Chinese lion dance as it is practiced in New York City's Chinatown.
Often confused for a dragon, which has a longer body and snout, the Lion Dance is a two-person folk dance, with one person underneath the head, controlling the lion's facial expressions, and another person as the tail, which controls the body of the lion. The band consists of a drummer, gong player, and several players on the cymbals. The lion dance is believed to bring good luck while chasing away evil spirits and bad luck.
In this series, the artist depicts Wing Hong Yip's Dragon Style Kung Fu Club performing in parades and banquets, locally and nationally. She has drawn on the experience of her fellow practitioners as well as her own to create this group of paintings.
