A good number of local celebrities attended the ceremony. Mr. Cai Mengfeng, principal of Beigang High School, presented an appreciation letter to the exhibition organisers. Artist Li Yuan, painter of “Tragedy in China,” then shared what he experienced when he was painting this piece: “This painting highlights what Falun Dafa practitioners are experiencing in China. I know the female figure in the painting. Though her story happened several years ago, my heart still feels the pain when I look at it.”
Mr. Xiao Yongyi, mayor of Beigang Township, gave a welcome speech at the opening ceremony. He said that the art exhibition brought him the truth of the persecution of Falun Gong for the very first time and he had many reflections on the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.
Mr. Yang Shengxiong, principal of Shuilin Middle School, said that he felt the compassion and uplifting power of the paintings: “The principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance represent the hope of human beings, and we should all support Falun Gong and help end the persecution. Falun Dafa is good.”
Ms. Guo Jingzhu admired the paintings with her daughter-in-law. She said that the exhibition was the best that she had ever seen. Her daughter-in-law found the persecution exposed by the exhibition horrifying and could not imagine such atrocities. As a parent, she was deeply touched by the paintings “Orphan” and “Homeless,” which depict children of practitioners persecuted in China.
Mr. Cai Liancheng is a retired school principal. He came to the exhibition with his wife. He said that he had seen the paintings several times and each time he learned new things. “Cultivating Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good, so why are such people persecuted? Those children whose parents died in the persecution are so innocent! We should all pay attention to the persecution of Falun Gong in China and help end it,” said Mr. Cai.
