An art investment company visited the Amity Foundation, hoping to work together with them in the future to launch some charity work.

Last Tuesday, Qiu Zhonghui, chairman of the board of the Amity Foundation, which was China’s first recognized Christian-initiated charity, shared about the charity philosophy, the development history, and the work results of the foundation with the visitors of Shizhuzhai Art Investment Company. 

He mentioned that the Amity Charity Painting and Calligraphy Institute, which was established last May, was an important achievement of Amity’s cross-border alliance because it built a new platform for charity within the areas of painting and calligraphy. He expected that in the future that the Amity and the company would conduct bold attempts with a long-term collaboration in the field of charity auctions of paintings and calligraphy, although this would rely on the institute’s platform.

Chen Weiguo, chairman of the art investment company (also called Ten Bamboo Studio), talked about how the studio had a history dating back more than 400 years after it was founded during the period of Wanli Emperor of the Ming Dynasty (1572-1620). Hu Zhengyan, the founder of Shizhuzhai, invented watercolor block printing and stamp embossing techniques, which were printing technologies combining multicolor chromatography, overprint, concave, and convex colorless imprint, all having a direct impact on the rise of Ukiyo-e woodblock prints in Japan.

Entering the art auction field in 2004, Shizhuzhai started the charity auction business in 2020, hoping to take on more social responsibilities in this way.
