BIRMINGHAM, Ala.-A retired NASA engineer from Huntsville with a gift for watercolor art will feature some of her works in a new exhibit that opens at the Central Library in downtown Birmingham on Friday, July 7. 

Caroline Wang’s exhibit, “Watercolor with Asian Flair,” assembles original watercolors of landscapes that she has encountered during her travels in the United States, the Far East, and Europe. Her watercolor paintings employ Asian brush strokes while retaining a Western visual perspective. Wang, a native of Taiwan, developed her passion for art at age 5, and furthered it while studying art at the University of Minnesota. She received a Master's degree in mathematics from the University of Wisconsin. Read her bio here http://www.cwanggallery.com.

Wang has won numerous awards at state and regional art contests. Another collection of Caroline’s work, Wild Lives in Color is currently on exhibit at the Decatur Carnegie Visual Art Center through Aug. 5.

A fashion designer as well, Wang uses her watercolor designs for VIDA scarves. She was one of the featured designers at the Alabama Fashion Alliance Fashion Show. Her other passions include violin, tennis, and public speaking as a member of Toastmasters International. Wang conveys one message in both her speeches and artwork: follow your passion and explore all the possibilities.  Read more about Wang's exhibit at the link below:
