Celebrate art and fashion on Saturday, February 12 at the International School of Beijing! Two exciting events – China Impression Art Exhibition and an annual student-run Charity Fashion Show — promote the concept of creativity while helping to support the Li Jiang Orphan School. Perfect for adults and children alike, it promises to be a fun-filled Saturday open to the public.
From 2-10pm in the Upper Gallery of ISB is an exclusive art exhibition featuring works by 798 contemporary Chinese photographer and artist Yang Zi. Mr. Yang will be available to discuss and sign works of art, and a portion of all proceeds will go to Li Jiang Orphan School. There is no entrance fee for the exhibition, and pieces will be sold during the event.
Mr. Yang’s artwork is inspired by the Han Dynasty philosophical concept stressing the unity and beauty achieved through heaven, nature and human spirituality. He has exhibited his work internationally. At the exhibit this weekend, featured art by Mr. Yang will include ultra giclee printing (an archival print or photograph that carries an 80-120 year warranty), water colors, and some of his oil paintings that were finished during his time at Yuan Ming Yuan art village over a decade ago, showcased now for the first time since their creation. Art purchased during the event can be home delivered. His work is also showcased and sold at Sun Art Space gallery in the 798 art district.

From 6:30-10pm in the ISB Theater is the 3rd annual Charity Fashion Show. An ISB student-run organization works to create this event from start to finish, with adult/staff supervision only. There are three clothing sponsors this year as well as student designers showcasing their own collections. Fashions include everything from casual wear, to chic daily wear for teens, to party dresses and suits, as well as one collection for younger children (ages 6-8). Some clothing will be available the night of the event through the silent auction held during the shows.
Last year, the Charity Fashion Show event raised over RMB 58,000, all of which went towards the Rebuilding Dreams Project to redevelop the Zhong Xin Elementary School. This year, funds will address the needs of Save the Children charity group. Started in the 1990s, this group helps the orphans of Li Jiang province earthquake. A school of about 300 students from 1st through 12th grades will be helped by the funding, and approximately one month after the event, an ISB student group will personally hand over the proceeds from the show to the Li Jiang Orphan School.
Tickets are sold at the door (RMB 50 for students; RMB 70 for adults). For additional information, contact Ria Bahl at email@example.com.
