"The Collection of Renowned Contemporary Chinese Painters and Calligraphers' Works Exhibition" was held in Taipei, and enthralled people from all walks of life. The exhibition displayed about a hundred paintings and calligraphies from more than 60 famous painters and calligraphers including Qi Baishi, Zhang Daqian, Wu Changshuo, Xu Beihong and Fu Baoshi. The exhibition has been held in Australia, Pingdong, Nantou and Tainan in South Taiwan, and made a great sensation.

Visitors were amazed by these excellent works of the most renowned painters and calligraphers living at the end of Qing Dynasty and in early years of the Republic of China. They appreciated the selflessness of collectors who exhibited free of charge their treasures that have been passed down five generations.

During 19-day exhibition, nearly 3,000 people came from all walks of life including people from judicial system, arts and literature fields, enterprises, educational system, police and military system and government offices.

Led by Mr. Yu Zhaonian, former head of Taipei's Supreme Court, about a hundred people including judges, presiding judges and staff came to visit the exhibition. 

Li Qimao, in his 60s, from the circle of arts; famous author Bai Yang; director of National History Museum Huang Guangnan; National Arts University professor Liu Siliang' and several disciples of Zhang Daqian also came to the exhibition. They were moved by Fu Baoshi's landscape paintings, and also showed sympathy for artist Qi Bingshu, who is suffering persecution for believing in "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance" in China.

Several government high-level officials and several retired generals also came to the exhibition to appreciate the paintings, and also learned the truth about Falun Gong.

About 1,000 students from 20 classes of Taipei's famous Jianguo Middle School were taken to the exhibit by their art teacher. Falun Gong practitioners showed them the award-winning film "False Fire" that analyzes the truth of the self-immolation incident at Tiananmen Square at the corner outside the exhibition room. The students showed their understanding by saying that Jiang's group not only deceives the world but also sows the seeds of hatred. The students wanted to have truth-clarifying VCDs and said they would explain the facts to their nets friends in Mainland China.

A primary school teacher came along with a group of students. In the end, they shouted aloud, "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, Falun Dafa is good." Some people said that they had heard about Falun Gong before, but never imagined that the persecution is so brutal. They asked how to help Falun Gong. One elderly person in his 80s came alone to the exhibition. When the practitioners asked him to leave some words, he thought for a while, and wrote, "Falun Dafa is really good."

Some people from the Mainland also came to the exhibition. An artist from Northwest of the Mainland came three times. At first he dared not accept the truth-clarifying VCD from Falun Gong practitioners, he said, "While I'm appreciating the paintings, please tell me the truth about Falun Gong you know." Later, he brought his daughter to the exhibition. Another elderly person in his 70s who came to Taiwan to visit relatives listened to the truth about Falun Gong, he also followed the practitioners to say three times "Falun Dafa is good."

This exhibition successfully combined appreciation of famous paintings and truth clarification, and attracted many people who are influential in society but seldom have the opportunity to learn the truth about Falun Gong. After they appreciated these traditional, pure, righteous and beautiful arts, they would accept the facts Falun Gong practitioners explained to them with a peaceful mind. Many people changed their negative impression of Falun Gong, or their indifferent attitude, and on their own initiative asked for the truth-clarifying materials and VCDs with the award-winning film "False Fire." They also expressed their support for Falun Gong.

After the exhibition in Taipei, the exhibition will go to Yunlin and other places in Taiwan, continuing letting more people learn the truth about Falun Gong, and bringing an end to the brutal persecution as soon as possible.
