Curator Cathy McLaurin will be installing the works for this exhibition at Merrimack College Gallery while Jane is continuing her work in Taiwan.

Jane organized and curated this exhibition that will be shown at institutions in the USA during 2004-06. As part of the work Jane has done for her Fulbright grant in Taiwan, Jane has made contact with many contemporary artists in Taiwan and mainland China and looked at their works to exchange ideas and discuss processes. During her six months in Taiwan she has lived in Taipei and traveled to Tainan, Taichung and other parts of Taiwan as well as to Shanghai and Hong Kong.

This exhibition is an opportunity for Taiwanese and Chinese artists to show their works in the USA, and for people in the USA to see contemporary works by artists from a different culture. This exhibition features works using paper as a material and increases awareness of the possibilities for creating innovative art with paper materials. The artists Jane selected for the exhibition reflect concerns with contemporary issues as well as the use of paper material and represent a variety of media, techniques and approaches.. Works in the exhibition include such techniques as paper cutting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, installation art, papermaking and mixed media.

"Bird Watching at Guandu Nature Park," November 6, 2004 - January 31, 2005, Guandu Nature Park, Taipei County, Taiwan

Wu Ling-i Director of Guandu Nature Park and Jane's BirdsFor this exhibition Jane volunteered to make a site-specific installation of 12 bird sculptures representing common birds found at Guandu Nature Park for the Park's new water plants area.  Jane's bird sculptures are installed on a bridge leading to a new marshland nature area that will provide homes and temporary resting places for the many migratory birds that stop over in Guandu Nature Park.  The installation will be on view at the Nature Park through January 2005.  This photo shows Guandu Nature Park director Lingi Wu displaying some of the birds temporarily on a pedestrian bridge over some of the marsh lands at the Nature Park.
