For over a decade, M. Sutherland Fine Arts has exhibited masters of Chinese contemporary art. At the gallery you will find artists redefining their thousand year old traditions with approaches from using time honored techniques to ultramodernist artists speaking out with new Chinese aesthetics using Western methods and materials.
Gallery owner Martha Sutherland is a Princeton educated art historian who speaks fluent Mandarin. Her graduate work took place under the instruction of two luminaries in field, Professor Chutsing Li of the University of Kansas and Laurence Sickman of the Nelson-Atkins Museum, Kansas City. Her work at the National Palace Museum in Taipei and two years of post-graduate study at the Central Art Academy in Beijing, afforded an opportunity to make lasting contacts in the Chinese art community. Overall, Martha Sutherland spent 18 years in China, first as a student and then as a member of the U.S. Foreign Service.
