Fifteen group members and their students are exhibiting their works in traditional and contemporary Chinese styles. The Harmonious Art Group was founded in 1995 by Bertrand Mao, master of Chinese Shan-Shui (Mountain-Water), and John Wang, master of Chinese calligraphy and seal cutting, to share the beauty of this ancient art form with the community. Over the years the group members have incorporated new techniques and styles demonstrating the diversity of Chinese art.
