“Bright Moon Shines Through the Pines” by Gail Threinen

About Gail Threinen:

Gail has always been in the arts: music, theatre, painting. But it was her family’s 5-yr experience living in Singapore and China where she fell in love with Chinese Brush Painting and Chinese Calligraphy. Upon returning from China, she served as a docent at the Minneapolis Museum of Art specializing in the China galleries where she received training from world-class scholars in Chinese art history and had access to close-up study of their extensive collection of Chinese calligraphy, bird and flower paintings and landscapes. Gail has been practicing and studying this art now for nearly 20 years. She is a member of the Sumi-e Society of America and has exhibited as well as won awards in their annual juried exhibitions and her work can be seen on their website. Gail is available to teach workshops and will be teaching a workshop on “Landscapes” at the Lakeway Activity Center on Saturday, March 11. Take a look at Gail’s award-winning Chinese brush painting, featured in 53rd annual juried Sumi-e Society. Gail can be contacted at gail.threinen@gmail.com, Facebook, or by phone at 651-269-8502.
