The Life of Jesus Christ and Traditional Chinese Culture


Last October 17, 2002, Thursday, The Negros Museum opened a new exhibit at the Gallery Blanco entitled The Life of Jesus Christ and Traditional Chinese Culture in Chinese Paper Cutting by Engr. Teresita T. Feng. Special guests during the opening were Msgr. John Liu, school rector of St. Johns Institute and Hon. Luzviminda S. Valdez, Mayor of Bacolod City together with the board of trustees of the Negros Cultural Foundation, Inc.

Engr. Teresita T. Feng has held exhibits on Chinese Paper Cutting since 2001 in different venues such as, SHI Activities Center, Museo Negrense, USLS, St. Josephs High School and Convention Plaza.

Paper-cutting is a traditional folk art decoration among the Chinese, dating back to the Huan and Tang Dynasties. It is one of the treasures in Chinese folk art. The various Chinese paper cuts with rich contents, and distinctive national styles are art works that beautify Chinese peoples life: wedding and festivals. This wisdom and creativity of the Chinese people has been passed on from generations to generations.

Mrs. Feng will conduct a workshop on Traditional Chinese Paper Cutting on Wednesday, October 23, 2002, 4:30pm to 5:30pm at The Negros Museum. Interested participants may call the museum at tel. nos. 434-5552 or 433-4764 and look for Johanna Aves-Teruel or Remar Gallego.


The Negros Museum needs competent volunteers to help us with a wide range of activities, some working on a weekly schedule, others working on an occasional basis or on specific events. Some work with our visiting public, others work behind the scenes.

For more information, please contact the museum and look for Johanna Aves-Teruel.
