For centuries the artists from Asia and countries in the West have worked collaboratively; sharing and influencing each other's creative worlds. The cultural, economic, and artistic examples of the collaborative process and exchange of ideas are collectively some of the finest and most sophisticated works of art in history. This exhibition makes visual the conversations that continue to develop with the artists presenting work from a fresh and unique contemporary perspective. The work of the Chinese and Nanaimo artists in the Arts of Momentum exhibition offers the viewer a glimpse into the individual and collaborative processes and approaches to creating art. It also illustrates the "momentum" that has and will continue to be created as each of the artists endeavors, through their art, to make their communities and the countries they call home, better and more visually exciting places to live."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo

Each community's printmaking history, artists and stylistic techniques are comprehensively documented.
