Works of art inspired by Chinese decoration. Chinoiserie is a western decorative style in art, furniture and architecture characterized by the use of Chinese motifs and techniques.

Jenny Manning is a multimedia artist, who paints, prints, draws, knits and makes baskets.  She returned to her art practice after 25 years teaching at the National Gallery of Australia and has had numerous solo and joint exhibitions in Canberra and interstate.

After retiring from the National Gallery of Australia Jenny started teaching drawing and other mediums to a selection of friends, who have faithfully returned every Thursday for the last 10 years.  Fifteen of these students have been exploring Chinese decoration and their colourful works are also on display.
