This is a fabulous exhibition with loans from the National Museum of History, Taiwan, the Sackler Collection/Smithsonian and the George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum (part of the Springfield Museums) in Massachusetts.  The exhibition is arranged chronologically displaying the principal types  of jade, including ritual objects, weapons, scholar’s objects, adornments and jewelry. John Johnston, Curator for Asian Art at the San Antonio Museum of Art is the Project Director for this exhibit. He has also written an article about the little known jade collection of the colorful collector George Walter Vincent Smith in the September 2011 issue of Orientations, page 105. 
 
John Johnston will give a lecture on January 31st 2012 about DRAGONS IN CHINESE JADE, celebrating the Year of the Dragon!!!!!!
