TOWSON, Md. (Feb. 8 , 2011)—The Asian Arts & Culture Center at Towson University presents Meditation on Contemporary Landscape, an exhibition on display Feb. 12 through March 19 in the Center for the Arts Asian Arts Gallery .
Meditation on Contemporary Landscape is curated by Luchia Lee, and will feature the work of multiple artists from East Asia whose art uses modern visual language to capture the landscape. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, Feb. 12, 2-4 p.m., and is free and open to the public.
In a related lecture, titled “Demystifying Chinese Tao Te Ching Philosophy,” Tao Master James Tu will discuss Tao Te Ching, the Chinese classics central to Chinese religion and philosophy.

Its influence has spread widely outside East Asia, aided by translations into Western Languages. A presentation of classic music on Chinese zither will follow the lecture, which will be held on Sunday, Feb. 27 at 3 p.m. in Center for the Arts Room 2032 and is free and open to the public.
The Center for the Arts is located on the corner of Osler and Cross Campus drives, and open Monday through Friday, from 11 a.m.- 4 p.m., and Saturday, from 1-4 p.m.
