To celebrate the centenary of the founding of the Communist Party of China, a folk art exhibition opened on June 30 in the city of Lishui – located in East China's Zhejiang province – and is scheduled to run to July 12.

More than 100 fine art works created by Lishui's artists went on display. The works include traditional fine celadon ceramics, paper-cutting, calligraphy, painting and other art categories.

These artworks are reportedly novel in concept, distinctive in artistic characteristics and are right on  the pulse of the times. They not only express the participants' love for the Party, the country and the people, but also honor the inspiring and towering achievements and great feats that China has made over the past century.

Lishui, which boasts a rich culture and history, is home to its own, distinctive creative forms. In recent years, a number of folk artists in Lishui have taken the initiative to serve local culture, which has greatly promoted artistic research and cultural exchanges at home and abroad.

According to the organizers, the event is being used as an opportunity to promote the inheritance and innovation of various folk arts.

They hope that there will be more popular literary and artistic works in the future, so Lishui can further enhance its influence as the "Hometown of Folk Art in China".
