Celebrate the exhibition "Liu Shiming: Descending the Mountain Together" in the Margie. E West Gallery at the Lamar Dodd School of Art. The exhibition is a small retrospective of the work of this significant Chinese sculptor. Descending the Mountain Together inaugurates the annual Liu Shiming award at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, given to an outstanding graduate student working in sculpture, ceramics, or 3-D design and installation. 

Liu Shiming (1926 - 2010) was a member of the first generation of sculptors to graduate from China's prestigious Central Academy of Fine Arts. Grounding his work in a local context, Shiming developed a folk art style within the Chinese tradition. He emulated ancient figurine making of the Hand dynasty while paying homage to ordinary life he observed in Henan and Hebei provinces of Northern and Central China.
