RU Art Professor Wins Top Prize in National Exhibition


A Tibetan monk is the subject of Z. L. Feng’s award-wining watercolor painting in the Keystone National Exhibition of Works on Paper at The Art Center School and Galleries, Mechanicsburg, Penn. This painting titled “Tibetan Monk” received the top award of first place.

“Beautiful use of color, both contrasting and complementary, used in just the right proportions and placed carefully and energetically in just the right places makes this painting a joy to look at. A great piece of visual excitement,” writes exhibition judge Richard Ressel about Feng’s piece.

The Keystone National competition is open to United States artists and includes work that is created on paper with mediums such as watercolors, acrylic, graphite, charcoal, colored pencil, and pastel.

This year’s exhibition features artists from 16 states and includes 50 juried entries. The show runs through October 11.

Feng is a professor of art at Radford University, who specializes in drawing and watercolor. He received his B.F.A. from Shanghai Teacher’s University in Shanghi, China. His M.F.A. is from RU. He has won over 300 state, regional, national, and international art awards since moving to the United States in 1986.
