Xinhua News Agency, Jerusalem, November 22 (Reporter Lu Yingxu and Zhang Tianlang) The one-month "Beautiful China-Xinjiang Natural Beauty Exhibition" opened at the China Cultural Center in Tel Aviv, Israel on the 22nd.
A total of 33 Xinjiang landscape-themed works of art, including screen prints and photographs, were exhibited in this photo exhibition. In addition, exquisite "Xinjiang-themed" cultural and creative derivatives were exhibited at the scene, showing the natural scenery and cultural charm of Xinjiang to the Israeli people from multiple angles.
Chinese Ambassador to Israel Cai Run said that the Israeli people have a desire to understand Xinjiang and its development. This photo exhibition is held at the right time, so that the Israeli people can better understand Xinjiang and China. "This is an important part of cultural exchanges and people-to-people bonds between the two countries," he said.
Shi Yuewen, director of the Tel Aviv China Cultural Center, pointed out that the purpose of this exhibition is to let the Israeli people perceive the natural landscape and beautiful scenery of Xinjiang through art forms, take this opportunity to promote the tourism resources of Xinjiang, and attract more Israeli people to travel to Xinjiang.
The prints and photographs exhibited this time were created by 15 Chinese oil painting artists in Kizil Grottoes, Subashi Ancient City, Tianshan Grand Canyon, Kizil Devil City and other places in Baicheng County, Xinjiang.
Shoshana, an Israeli who visited the photo exhibition, was attracted by a photo of Populus euphratica called "Proud". In the picture, under the dark blue sky, there are dark brown and thick dry tree trunks on one side, and young trees with luxuriant branches and leaves growing on the other side. She said that she saw "the stubbornness of life" in this picture.
Ariel, a visitor from Israel, said that after viewing these pictures, he deeply felt the beauty of Xinjiang's natural scenery. He has traveled to China many times, but he has never been to Xinjiang. He hopes to have the opportunity to visit in person in the future.
The photo exhibition is co-hosted by the China-Foreign Cultural Exchange Center, the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region Department of Culture and Tourism, and the Tel Aviv China Cultural Center. Nearly 100 Chinese and Israeli people attended the opening ceremony, including Yan Xiangdong, Cultural Counselor of the Chinese Embassy in Israel, and Joseph Klein, Chairman of the China-Israel Friendship Association.
