Two exhibitions here showcase mostly woodblock prints from the collection of the National Art Museum of China

About 170 works of folk art from China, created from the 17th century to the present day to celebrate Chinese New Year, are on display at the private Parkview Museum in North Bridge Road and the China Cultural Centre in Queen Street.

The exhibitions in both locations run until April 12 and mostly showcase woodblock prints, often with hand-painted elements, from the collection of the National Art Museum of China (Namoc). The joint showcase is organised by Namoc, in collaboration with Parkview Museum and the China Cultural Centre.
