Situ Ning, the 80-year-old Canton painted porcelain master, is eager
to have more shows for folk art fans to display the charm of doing
painting on porcelain.

Today, Situ donates his piece "Roosters Reporting Good News" to
Guangdong Folk Art Museum as his greeting to the ongoing 9th China Art
Festival. Zhang Minhui, ivory carving master, Xu Enfu and
Zhai Huiling, Canton painted porcelain masters, also donate one art
piece respectively to the Museum.

Li Zhuoqi, Director of Guangdong Folk Art Museum, said inviting
masters to showcase their craftsmanship in the museum did draw a lot of
attention from both local residents and tourists. "Many foreign tourists
showed strong interests in these exquisite hand made folk arts. Some
even bought the masters' pieces though they are pretty expensive,"  Li
added, "This really helps the art to reach new audiences and buyers."

Li also said that the Museum is considering more "folk art live
shows" so as to help Guangdong folk art to pass down to new generations.
Situ Ning said he is willing to participate in the show series "as long
as he is healthy."
