Our group really enjoys the Smithsonian Freer and Sackler Museum. At times, we combine the Teaism meetups and walk 10 mins across the Mall. However, please go on your own and enjoy this Exhibition that continues through October 26, 2014. If one of the members would like to gather the group, please post on the website. (from Evelyn)

Landscape painting is one of the outstanding achievements of Chinese culture. While the tradition has a long history reaching back to the third century, it was during the roughly four hundred-year period from the Five Dynasties (907–960) to the Song dynasty (960–1279) that its characteristic styles and techniques emerged. This exhibition showcases a group of the Freer’s best Song dynasty landscape paintings along with later works that illustrate the evolution of six different styles. A subsequent exhibition will explore developments during the Yuan dynasty (1279–1368).
