National Steinbeck Center announces Belle Yang exhibition

Submitted by on July 30, 2012 – 2:36 pm

National Steinbeck Center presents an exhibition of work by Belle Yang open August 4 – October 28, 2012.

When you look up Belle Yang in her Red Room (dot-com) website, this is what you read under her name, “adult nonfiction, graphic novel, children’s picture book >Author. But one word that seems to be missing is “Painter.” As Belle simply states in her PBS documentary “When I’m writing, I’m a writer; when I’m painting, I’m a painter.” Yes she is, indeed.

As an art exhibition curator, when I opened and read Belle Yang’s books, I walked into a museum gallery each time. On every page, I examined the art and studied her written words like labels on a gallery wall. And while immersed, there have been many times when I turn a page and look up as if to see her work in front of me. Well done Belle!
