Guest Artist: Mr. Dongsheng Gao

An art demonstration you won't want to miss!

The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum is thrilled to have guest artist Mr. Dongsheng Gao join us for one day only as he visits the West Coast from China. Mr. Gao is an expert in a unique art form: snuff bottle painting.

South China Morning Post says Mr. Gao is “one of the few remaining masters of the art which dates back to the late Ming dynasty (1368-1644), and involves painting through the neck of the pocket-sized crystal and glass bottles with ultra-fine brushes to depict traditional Chinese scenes, landscapes or portraits.”

Mr. Gao will be doing a presentation on his specialized art form and displaying many of the bottles he’s painted over his 30+ year career. He will also have bottles for purchase, and will the event be customizing a few.

Tim Flannery & Friends will perform their colorful blend of folk, country and traditional music and storytelling aboard the Star of India Saturday, December 15 from 8 to 10 p.m.

Tim Flannery as baseball man turned musician turned philanthropist.

Tim “Flan” Flannery is by far more than a baseball celebrity. Those who know Flan understand how much music has always meant to him. Wherever he goes, he’s always got his guitar with him. And in his playing or coaching days, on a rainy night in St. Louis or after a day game in Cincinnati, you might have heard him singing in the stairwells of the team hotel. Flan is a three World Series championship San Francisco Giants teams (2010, 2012, 2014), and has spent thirty plus years in the Major Leagues and baseball analyst for both the MLB Network and NBC Bay Area Sports.
